The Romanian Constitution guarantees equal treatment of all citizens in Art.4.2 providing for citizenship without any discrimination on account of race, nationality, ethnic origin, language, religion, sex, opinion, political adherence, property or social origin, and in Art. 16 providing for the equality of all citizens before the law and public authorities, without any privilege or discrimination. Art. 30 (7) prohibits ‘any instigation …, to national, racial, class or religious hatred, any incitement to discrimination.’ Constitutional norms are not self-enforcing. The 2013 discussions for the revision of the Constitution touched upon the list of protected grounds, expanding the list to the one in Art. 21 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, however excluding sexual orientation which was initially included and subsequently deleted by the Commission for the Revision of the Constitution.
