Abstract

The current pace of European integration reforms in Romania gives us the opportunity to analyze the way different social entities encapsulated values and principles emerged from the European policies. For any state, and especially for the ones newly adhered to the European Union, public administration is or must become receptive to the major social transformations, thus ensuring the necessary infrastructure for its operationalization. In this context, the unformalized European acquis as expressed by the principles of the European Administrative Space (EAS) becomes a true standard whose internalization at national administrative level may gives us the relevant information on the depth of the European integration process.

Starting with the EAS principles, the authors conceptualized a specific instrument/questionnaire as to assess in a socio-statistic perspective, its internalization. Designed within the framework of modern theories of organizational sociology, that view the internalization as a process of organizational learning and change, and using a relevant sample of Romanian civil servants, the questionnaire offered important and useful results to the future national policies and strategies necessary to the harmonization of the Romanian administration to the European one.

Keywords: European Administrative Space, rule of law, openness, administrative
