I have studied the EU, in theory and in practice, on a daily basis for years now and I am glad to have been invited to various European universities in cities such as Brussels, Bucharest and Cluj, to deliver lectures to their students about EU communication techniques.
Over 7 years ago I launched a blog with articles and opinions about the EU and how Romanians are affected by changes in contemporary Europe. The amount of information collected in over 2,000 messages is considerable and for me it was time to try to project the “Web 2.0 world” into the “serious world” of books. So I published a book on “European Union: Views from Brussels”.
The material this book contains is a reflection of how it was published on the blog, thus maintaining a “scent” of the period it was written in. The messages are presented chronologically; however, I introduce segmentation following certain topics: EU Actors & EU Citizens, Future EU, EU Communication, Romania in EU, Management & Business, EU Education and Technology & Media.
I want to thank everyone who supported this idea – a book about the EU, seen from a Brussels perspective, with Romanian views filtered through it.
