 PERSPECTIVES OF THE BALKANS AS A SECURITY REGION Prof.dr. Vihren Bouzov 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. There exist some reasons to conclude that the Balkan countries feel unwelcome in the EU through the fault of the leading countries in this organization, which give them a role of a “cordon sanitaire” against refugee flows and staging ground for confrontation to Russia. In the paper are critically analyzed the state of the regional relations and the confrontation of the “super-powers” (USA, Russia, the EU) around the realization of some key energy projects on the Balkans. The new role of Turkey as a regional leader and an energy center is also an important argument in favour of the thesis of formation of the Balkans as a separate 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.
