Over 400 people were left injured on 10 August after clashes between protesters and police in Romania. Bianca Toma and Alexandru Damian explain the origins of the protests, which emerged in opposition to attempts by the government to weaken anti-corruption measures. They argue that the EU's response has been insufficient given the importance of tackling corruption in the country and the harsh treatment of protesters by the Romanian authorities.
