Solving the issue of detention conditions in Romania. Between national distrust and … international distrust

Sometimes, solving sensitive issues and reconciling national and international commitments is a difficult task. Moreover when the preservation of trust internationally involves measures that do not benefit from a trust capital internally. In Romania, a typical situation in this sense refers to the issue of detention conditions.
Thus, in a social and political climate dominated by distrust towards the criminal policy measures envisaged, as well as dissatisfaction with the compensatory measures adopted, the next steps seem to be difficult. However, extreme legislative measures aimed at responding to internal dissatisfaction, such as the recent repeal of the law regarding the compensatory measures, somewhat populist in the electoral context, affects the trust internationally.
The study is intended as an invitation to debate. In our opinion, solving the issue of detention conditions in Romania is fundamentally related to the trust towards authorities.
