    Among different sociological concepts and theories applicable to the study of the process of Europeanization of public administration, internalization is but seldom to be encountered. The internalization of the principles of the European Administrative Space (EAS) in the national public administrations appears as both a learning process, as well as a process of organizational change, a consequence of the interaction between individual learning, civil servants and public employees, and organizational learning, at the level of public institutions and authorities. The mechanisms that favor internalization are multiple, and are extracted from the complexity of the activities implied by the European integration; without it, one could not differentiate between the amounts of information available. The authors of the present report chose to make an assessment based on empirical researches, and an interpretation in accordance to the statistical instruments employed. This report is structured in three chapters regarding the European Union and the process of Europeanization, EAS in the context of Europeanization, as well as the internalization of the EAS principles in Romania. The empirical and statistical approach represents the largest part of the report, offering significant details for which those interested may constitute the premises for further developments. Actually, the formulated conclusions may be even more deepened and associated with action plans to determine a further internalization of the EAS principles.
