Romania transitioned into a democratic regime in 1989 with the overthrow of the country’s long-lasting communist government. Romania does not have a recent history of large-scale conflict. However, the country has had a tense relationship with its ethnic Hungarian population, which resulted in violent clashes between Romanians and ethnic Hungarians in the Transylvanian city of Târgu Mureș in 1990.
