Systematizing the legal framework regulating Romanian tourism – proposal for an innovative public policy
Fori?, D.
Bulletin of the Transilvania University of Brasov. Series V : Economic Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The numerous Romanian standards and legal regulations, as well as their particularities in the field of tourism lead us to formulating systematising proposals for the existing legal framework in the field of tourism. As a result of reviewing legal regulations of public administration applied to Romanian tourism activities, we observe that there are numerous legal regulations that embrace the field of tourism; moreover, according to an analysis of the nature of these regulations applied in tourism, we notice that it is particularly the state and the public authorities that have regulatory roles in tourism, more precisely the protection role against abnormalities and abuses caused in tourism and the role of developing tourism. We identify the flexibility and heterogeneity as being the important particularities of legal regulations in the field of tourism. We consider as opportune the proposal regarding the systematisation of the existing legal framework in the field of tourism, by creating and elaborating a “Code of tourism”, an instrument that shall re-unite the laws and regulations applicable to the tourist industry for an accessible and easy identification, both from the juridical and institutional points of view.

Abstract: Resumen:Impartir poesía en el aula ha sido, para muchos docentes, un trabajo difícil y a veces ininteligible. Ello puede deberse a la estructura y al contenido de este género lírico, que se especializa en emitir emociones y no en contar acciones o ideas.

Por ello, se presenta un ejemplo de análisis, usando el poema Penélope de Marta Rojas que pretende ser un modelo para discutir y mejorar en el aula de Espa ol.Abstract:Providing poetry in the classroom has been, for many teachers, hard work and sometimes unintelligible.
