Romania: Rural Life in the EU

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Romania, Arts & Culture, Environment, Governance, International Relations, Law, Photography, Politics

Tessa Bunney [1], who photographed rural life in the Carpathians of Romania, wrote this [2] about the implications of the EU accession for some of the subjects of her photos: “The Romanian government’s interpretation of EU policy has resulted in the banning of horse and carts and hand milking of cows. No animals are to be kept within 200m of the house. If they decide to strictly implement these rules it will be the end of the family farm. No animals will mean no hay and the landscape will change forever.”
