The construction initiated by Monnet, Schuman, Adenauer and De Gasperi had a remarkable evolution not only concerning the number of the Member States, but also in terms of institutional and functional development, the European Union being one of the most important changing factor concerning the governance and the policy-making process at European level and not only. The number of researches studying the European Union from the perspective of its role or its impact in the development and implementation of public policies has increased in the last decades, emphasizing the various approaches of this issue.
Using the theoretical, analytical and empirical framework, described by various scholars, the paper aims: - to explore the conceptual dimension of Europeanization and European integration, stressing the differences and similarities; - to achieve a progressive analysis of the reforms made by the European Union in the European policy framework, outlining the methods used in elaboration of its policies; - to emphasize the efforts of regulatory and institutional change made by Romania in its policy-making process, as a result of the European integration and Europeanization processes.
For achieving the aims of the actual paper we have used bibliographical research and study of legislation at European and national level, applied to European and domestic public policies as well as the study of procedural documents carried out by Romanian authorities for domestic public policy elaboration.
Keywords: Europeanization, national and European public policies, institutional and procedural changes
