Forthcoming policy developments

In November 2019 the National Authority for Disabilities has merged with the National Authority for the Rights of the Child and Adoption. The new structure, priorities and policies have been developed in 2020.


Ongoing debates 

Ongoing debates in the field of youth and sports (including sports and well-being for young people) are currently (in 2018-2020) focusing on a major reform of the administrative structure of the main elements of the youth and sports policy: decentralising most of the youth activities undertaken at the moment by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.The decentralisation is supposed to include administration of initiatives within the programme ‘Sports for all’ currently under the Ministry of Youth and Sports and of most of the public sports infrastructure available for young people in Romanian towns.


Main actors involved in the debate at the moment are the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration and the representatives of local (community and county) public authorities. 


draft law for decentralisationhas been drafted in 2018 and published for public consultation on October 2018, the civil society being also involved in the debate in this way.
