How is the Romanian public sphere influenced by the Euro Crisis?
Following the global financial crisis, the spillover of the Euro Crisis from Greece to the rest of the EU states in 2009 has caused serious economic, political and institutional implications that are still thus far evident. Romania is one of the states affected by this crisis, which has caused a considerable drop in the Romanian public’s trust in the EU, driven by the impact of the European-level-decisions on their own lives. This paper studies the way the crisis of the European Union influences the debates among the Romanian public sphere and how the EU can regain their trust.
