Trends in the field of social policies and welfare reforms in Romania

As an (important) emigration country, Romania should probably invest more in improving its system of collecting data about migration and especially in monitoring the process. The interventions aiming to maximize the positive effects of migration or to minimize the negative ones should be based on an adequate knowledge of phenomenon and its continuous change. Moreover, there is a need for specialists in the field of migration which can not be supported without an effort of institution building. Romania is a country that still does not have a specialised research centre on migration.
