This paper considers the case of the international migrants’ confidence in political institutions, from a social embeddedness perspective on political trust. We use country-level aggregates of confidence in institutions as indicators of specific cultures of trust, and by employing data from the European Values Study, we test two competing hypothese...

In this chapter we investigate the way in which religion influences social participation in postcommunist societies. Previous studies have shown that religion has a positive effect on civic engagement, both beliefs and behaviors increasing the level of social participation (Verba et al. 1995; Curtis et al. 2001). The relationship between religion,...

This article shows that highly correlated measures can produce different results. We iden-tify a democratization model from the literature and test it in more than 120 countries from 1951 to 1992. Then, we check whether the results are robust regarding measures of democracy, time periods, and levels of development. The findings show that measures d...

Changes in support for democracy and market economy in Romania between 1990 and 2006
Chapter
Romanian politics and society have been traditionally Europhile and uncritical towards the process of European integration. From the mid-1990s onwards, all parties with ambitions of government converged on consensual pro-European stances. Since then, no relevant party built its agenda around a critical assessment of the EU. On this basis, this chap...
Article
We analyse Roșia Montană environmental activism as a critical case that brings together an unusual combination of high levels of transactional activism and high levels of mass protests. We build on the assumptions of civil society in post-communist Europe and the literature on environmental mobilization to investigate the ways in which environmenta...
Article
This paper is the first exploratory analysis of the ideological features of extra-parliamentary radical-right populist parties in Romania, which, despite lacking parliamentary power, confirm the latent fertility of Romanian politics for populism. Using qualitative content analysis of programs and statutes, we identify a decreased relevance of ethni...

Studiu de fundamentare pentru Strategia naţională privind incluziunea socială şi reducerea sărăciei
Conference Paper
Placed within the framework of Easton's model of support for the political system, we analyze the relationship between individual perceptions of economic conditions and different dimensions of support for democracy (from specific, to middle-range, and to diffuse support). While this is an often-researched topic, we believe that the current economic...
