Who we are?

The European Center for Ethnic Studies (CESPE) is a research institute affiliated to the Romanian Academy. CESPE was founded in 1991 by Government Decision (G.D. No. 677/1991).

The Center’s activities see to identify the main problems to which national minorities in Romania are confronted. They also concentrate on the situation of the Romanian communities outside Romania’s borders. Both issues are considered form the perspective of the European policies regarding minorities.
