    Course Outlines

    During the Cold War period, the Balkan region was one of the frontlines of the East-West confrontation. However, one of the main implications of the ending of the Cold War has been the emergence of new regions in the former communist bloc. South-Eastern Europe has become once again a crossroads where great powers and local states seek influence, compete or cooperate with each other over markets and resources. The region presents challenges to global security, as well as opportunities for the overall interests of the international community. For reasons of geographical proximity, those challenges concern first and foremost the European Union. They arise from the region’s demographic situation and migratory pressures, inter-state and ethnic conflicts, terrorism and organized crime.
