LEGAL PERSPECTIVES ON THE UNIFICATION OF THE REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA WITH ROMANIA. WILL THE HISTORY REPEAT ITSELF?

Dumitru Cazac

 

Abstract

The Great Union of 1918 has represented a fundamental step in the foundation of the

contemporary Romanian state, whereas for Bessarabia it was a chance to retake its direction of

evolution towards the west. Unfortunately, the history has separated it once again in 1944, in order

to become an independent state named the Republic of Moldova, after a soviet era. Unionist

tendencies were registered on both sides of the Prut river ever since 1991, and have augmented in the

last years due to the worsening economic situation. This paper aims to make a legal analysis on a

possible unification of the Republic of Moldova with Romania, taking into account, particularly, the

EU member statute of Romania and the existence of a separatist region – Transnistria, as well as an

autonomous territorial unit – Gagauzia, on the territory of the Republic of Moldova.
