The micro-studies collection (Working Papers and Policy Briefs) coordinated by the European Institute of Romania tackles relevant International Relations and European Affairs topics, adapted to the ever changing domestic and European contexts.

To this end, EIR welcomes potential authors from heterogeneous fields of social sciences, including researchers from various university centers and academic institutes who can actively contribute to widening the knowledge base in the area of European studies. The micro-studies collection supports the exchange of scientifically expressed and argued ideas and points of view, and facilitates the dissemination of information and opinions for shaping up a cogent Romanian narrative.

Policy Briefs represent rather concise papers which aim at presenting one specific problem or challenge, relevant for the European dynamics, containing policy recommendations and suggestions regarding the best course of action.

Working Papers are more elaborate and complex papers, adding an empirical or theoretical contribution to the European debate, in order to try and consolidate Romania’s role as a Member State, in particular, and as an increasingly important Euro-Atlantic actor, in general. A special attention is given to relevant policy recommendations for decision makers.
