Keywords:institutions; higher education, communism, post-communism, Romania;
In 1989, the system of higher education in Romania was composed of 46 institutions located in 18 centres. After the fall of the communism, the number of institutions quickly increased as was the number of hosting cities. Thus, in 2023, there are 53 institutions in 20 centres of higher education. This article follows the evolution of the network of institutions of higher education between 1989 to 2023. Many of the changes happened in the 1990s and later mainly only changes to the names of the institutions were applied. Likewise, the article showcases the main sources for this research and the problems when using them, also pointing to new connected research topics, that may improve the general understanding of how the network of higher education institutions was shaped in the recent decades.
