ABSTRACT
SOVEREIGNTY IS DEFINED AS THE POWER THAT A STATE POSSESES, THE POWER TO ELABORATE IT`S OWN SET OF LAWS AND TO TRANSFER LAW INTO PRACTICE.SOVERAIGNTY IS EQUIVALENT WITH INDEPENDENCE. AFTER THE INTEGRATION IN THE EUROPEAN UNION, ROMANIAN CITIZENS REGARDED THE STATUS OF ROMANIA AS ONE THAT COULD OFFER MORE FREEDOM OF CHOICE AND OF ACTION, IN WHICH THE ATTRIBUTES OF DEMOCRACY BECAME MORE ACCENTED ; THIS LED THEM TO THE FALSE IMPRESSION THAT THE ROMANIAN STATE HAD GAINED MORE POWER. IN REALITY, THE EFFECTS OF THE EUROPEAN INTEGRATION HAVE A DOUBLE MEANING. ON ONE SIDE, THERE IS THE REALITY OF PROGRESS, ON THE OTHER SIDE, THE REALITY OF SOVERAIGNTY LOSS. BY TAKING ALL THESE FACTORS INTO CONSIDERATION, THE PRESENT ARTICLE HAS THE PURPOSE OF HIGHLIGHTING THE CONSEQUENCES OF ROMANIA`S LOSS IN THE FIELD OF SOVERAIGNTY. « THE SOVEREIGN WITH IT`S WINGS CLIPPED» IS THE SYMBOL OF A STATE THAT HAS LITTLE POWER AND CONTROL OVER ITS INTERNAL POLICY AND WHOSE SOVEREIGNTY HAS BEEN ERODED ATFER THE EUROPEAN INTEGRATION AND DUE TO INTERNAL FACTORS. ONLY A SERIOUS APPROACH OF ITS OWN PROBLEMS BY THE ROMANIAN STATE CAN LEAD THE COUNTRY OUT OF THE INTERNAL CRISIS, THAT IS A SOCIAL, ECONOMICAL, POLITICAL, AND , ABOVE ALL, MORAL CRISIS.
