The region that covers the Balkans and the Mediterranean has historically served as a bridge between the East and the West, between Europe, Asia and Africa. Historically these areas have witnessed the interaction and collision of various empires, religions and civilizations.

Starting from the disintegration of Yugoslavia to the aftermath of the so-called Arab Spring, ethnic cleansing, political turmoil, fundamentalism, organized crime, terrorism, illegal immigration and foreign interventions have largely shaped the regional security agenda.
