The paper presents arguments for the formation of the Balkans as a separate region of security in the last two decades. From the point of view of the regionalist paradigm in security studies are theoretically analyzed the results of the “super-powers” policies, ethnic conflicts and wars in our region. In the paper are critically analyzed the present-existing status of regional relations and the confrontation around the realization of new projects on the Balkans. The new role of Turkey as a regional leader and an energy center is a new feature of our security region. The conclusion is grounded that the transformation of the EU in the XXI century and the ability of our countries to unite around common interests determines the prospects of achieving of lasting peace and conditions of economic recovery and progressive development on the Balkans.
