IMPLICATIONS OF THE RURAL-URBAN MIGRATION ON REGIONAL EMPLOYMENT AND DEVELOPMENT TRENDS IN ROMANIA Abstract:Traditionally the rural areas have been less developed than urban areas, while the interaction reflected rather a complementary relationship. The distinction between compact urban settlements and their rural hinterlands has diminished over time in many developed countries, due to technological, economic and institutional factors. In Romania, the high share of rural population and the development gap between the urban and rural areas have shaped the development path of the country. The paper focuses on the main urban-rural interactions in Romania in terms of demographic and employment trends. The analysis reveals that the migration has contributed to the divergent inter-regional development. Classification-JEL: J11, J61, O18 pp. 35-48 Downloads

The Convergence to European Union: Investigations for Central and Eastern Europe Countries Abstract: The prospects of the Central and Eastern European countries to become members of the European Monetary Area depend very much on introducing structural reforms in order to have economic policies correlated with a high degree of convergence with the rest of the European Union countries. The transition process of the Central and Eastern European countries offers the opportunity to carry out a quantitative analysis of convergence, as well as to identify the paths of economic development leading to a certain degree of convergence. This article explores the convergence of the Central and Eastern European countries based on the macroeconomic indices. Classification-JEL: R11,E60 Keywords: real convergence, Central and Eastern European countries, trade integration,business cycle synchronization, structural convergence pp. 49-69 Downloads

ENTREPRENEURSHIP: NURTURING SELF-ESTEEM IN A NEW GENERATION OF IMMIGRANT ARAB WOMEN IN ROMANIA Abstract: Our paper casts an innovative light on Arab women entrepreneurs, immigrant in Romania, and the changing role of Arab females in a different cultural environment. This is based on a pioneering qualitative research consisting in carrying out in-depth interviewees with five immigrant Arab women entrepreneurs acting on the Romanian market. Aiming to raise awareness about immigrant Arab women entrepreneurs in Romania, in our research we mainly approached personal, cultural, and entrepreneurial issues. Based on our research results, in this paper we highlight a profile of the interviewed Arab women entrepreneurs and a series of business particularities of their entrepreneurial ventures, focusing on factors affecting entrepreneurship. The challenges Arab women face when starting a business, from family, moral, and financial support to adapting in a European country, are thoroughly approached in our study.
