After the 1918 Union, the new Romanian state was to consolidate its political, legal and administrative unity. To this end, the Romanian Social Institute, led by the great sociologist Dimitrie Gusti, organized, between 1921 and 1923, a series of public conferences and debates on the new Constitution of Romania and its way of functioning, as well as the position and role of political parties towards social issues, economic and cultural aspects of Romanian society. These debates brought together politicians, historians, political scientists and sociologists, who scientifically assessed Romania’s social problems as well as the ways to follow into the future of this country.

Keywords: public debates and conferences, Romanian Social Institute, Romanian Constitution, doctrines and political parties, social issues.
