Rural Development and Tourism in Romania: A Community and National [Legal] Perspective

Gabriela Oanta, Francesco Sindico

Research output: Working paper


This working paper wishes to analyse Romania’s current legislative framework in relation to rural development and tourism. On the one hand, we will deal with the European Union’s policies on these two fields and with the financial instruments that Romania is entitled to and that it could use the promote rural development and tourism. On the other hand, the working paper wishes to look into the domestic legislation framework on the possible linkage between these two fields. The final goal is to assess whether Romania is provided with the necessary legal tools to take a strategic decision about how to develop its rural areas through, amongst the other factors, tourism. This is a historical moment for this country since it has recently entered the EU.
