Measures and Decisions of Economic Stability from the Perspective of the European Monetary Union

The present project is the natural following of the research that I have conducted throughout my PhD. programme, concentrated on aspects regarding the European Economic and Monetary Union, with emphasis on Romania. Profoundly affected by the international subprime crisis, the Euro Area countries have felt the pressure of not being able to cope with the standards of the EMU. Their problems have, consequently, increased the pressures upon EU members that are going to adopt the common currency in the near future. Taking into account possible legislative changes, the research will use various modelling methods to emphasize problems of monetary convergence in the European Union, including spatial econometrics techniques.

Previous results have revealed a high level of restrictiveness for Romania in order to comply with the convergence criteria and adopt the euro. Bearing in mind the worsening of the economic conditions, on one side, and new Pact for Euro and the Euro – Plus Pact on the other, the continuation of the research is needed. What would be the effects of the new European decisions upon Romania on her way to the common currency? The results and conclusions of this project would have to answer a series of questions related to Romania and the Euro, taking into consideration European dynamics. What is the situation of Romania? What are the possible evolutions of the Romanian society in such a complex environment as the EU and in relation to the participation to the Euro – Plus Pact?

The approach will be a progressive one, from simple descriptive analysis, to time and spatial modelling.
