Adrian Vițalaru, Ionuț Nistor, Adrian-Bogdan Ceobanu



Romanian Diplomatic Corps (1918-1947):

Recruitments, Professional Ways, Intellectual Profiles


1st Edition 2020. 338 pages, EUR 39,90

ISBN 978-3-86628-656-6


















The 18 studies of this volume not only propose original interpretations

about the evolution of the Romanian diplomatic corps, but also use new sources

and methods of investigation regarding the construction of the profession.

The volume does not present the history of the diplomatic negotiations conducted

by Romania in the first half of the 20th century, nor is it a history of the treaties and

relations between states. It is a harmonic attempt, although composed of different

perspectives, to reconstruct the organization and functioning of the Ministry of

Foreign Affairs, especially the professional routes, recruitment, training, roles,

social relations and political involvement of Romanian diplomats.
