It should be understood that we should first of all “join” ourselves by the reconstruction and reshaping of our own system of values and only after that wish to join the united Europe. Is useful to point out that the present day Europe is not that of the Treaty of Rome, but that of the Maastricht Treaty of 1992. There is a big difference between what we understand now in Romania by integration and how it is defined in Western Europe. Thus, in Romania, nowadays by integration we understand rather an attempt to remedy the disintegration. For the western European countries, which had long ago solved their after war problems, integration is defined as a process of “coupling” the economies and institutions, starting with the juridical ones, passing to the educational and finishing with the cultural ones. So the European Community functions as a whole under as many aspects as possible. Integration is thus the expression of a high economic, political, social and institutional consciousness of the integrating countries. Integration is to achieved, and not decided upon.
