Current context

The National Alliance of Student Organizations in Romania (ANOSR) is the first and most important student federation, non-governmental and non-partisan. Since its establishment, ANOSR has brought together most of the traditional student organizations, established immediately after the revolution, together forming a team based on principles and professionalism. This representativeness is recognized and supported by important organizations in civil society, the media, the academic community and important central actors such as the Ministry of National Education.

În prezent, ANOSR numără 121 de organizații studențești din 19 centre universitare și 31 de universități din România.

Short history

ANOSR it has its roots in student social movements since the fall of 1995, when student leaders felt a lack of central and effective coordination. Thus, on April 4, 1999, in Timișoara, on the occasion of the International Student Week, the General Constituent Assembly takes place, attended by 28 student organizations from all over the country.

ANOSR passed at the end of the year 1999 through a real baptism of "fire" due to the wide social movements in the waves, at which point we proved that we are able to represent and mobilize tens of thousands of students on the streets of more than 70% from Romanian university centers.

ANOSR acquired its legal personality only in April 2000 by a decision of the Supreme Court of Justice, in the context of an obvious opposition of the government of that time. It becomes so the first national student federation in Romania.

ANOSR received in October 2002 full membership of European Student Forum (ESU), becoming the first and only student federation in Romania recognized and represented at European level.

Purpose and Objectives of ANOSR

ANOSR is oriented towards representation and promotion the interests of Romanian students in terms of education, social, economic and cultural, both at the level national, and also international. We are first and foremost a communication platform between member organizations, in order to facilitate partnerships and the exchange of resources between student organizations.

ANOSR its main objective is to represent the common interests of students, its members, the formation of leaders at national and international level, as well as their promotion in society. In our relationship with member organizations we rely on principles transparency and non-partisanship, making it easy for anyone to access representative and apolitical student structures, at our initiative. We support their involvement in decision-making at all levels.

ANOSR gets involved in developing national and international education and youth policies, formulating and supporting the position of students, providing support to member organizations in the effective implementation of these policies at the local level.

ANOSR advocates for a non-demagogic, non-partisan style of work, based on facts, relevant documents and quality standards, as well as real proposals from both dialogue partners to address the issues raised in the reform process.
