Abstract
There is a clear difference between types of regions and forms of regionalization.

The regional policy of the EU is one example for today's regionalization as a West discourse and the Transylvanian in Rumania as an example for the East discourse. Actually Transylvania is the place where these two discourses meet. Rumania is in a way bounded to follow the EU... (More)
There is a clear difference between types of regions and forms of regionalization. This theoretical division can point out other division lines on different areas and levels, like the one of discourses. In this article is urged that regional political discourses may be divided in West and East European ones. To argue for West and East differences in regional discourse the article shows division lines both in the history of regionalization but also in ideologies. The regional policy of the EU is one example for today's regionalization as a West discourse and the Transylvanian in Rumania as an example for the East discourse. Actually Transylvania is the place where these two discourses meet. Rumania is in a way bounded to follow the EU regional policy and in the same time there are the requests of the Hungarian minority parties and organizations for a bigger authority and even autonomy for the Hungarian minorities in the country.

There are three fundamental questions to bee answered: 1) whether there is a relevant division line between the two discourses; 2) what does this difference between the two discourses mean in Transylvania and 3) which relevance can we see of these disparities between discourses for the EU regional policy by the challenges these mean.
