Explaining clientelism in Romania

This project was funded by the Romanian Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI) for the period 2020-2022, project number: PN-III-P1-1.1-TE-2019-0460.

Local Resilience (LOCRES)

The project aims to provide a way to measure community resilience and capture local capabilities and vulnerabilities.

It aims to become a source for policy makers and to illustrate the socio-economic mechanisms of contemporary communities and their challenges during crises. The methodology is applied to the cases of Romania and the Republic of Moldova, with the potential to be extended to the entire Eastern European region in the future.
