Western Balkans is historically one of the most dynamically changing regions of Europe. It is placed at the crossroads between Central and Eastern Europe, and thus forms a crucial link in the chain of security for both regions. To ensure the persisting security, despite the changing security environment, constructive and permanent dialogue between the two regions is necessary. The dialogue can provide each side with the perspectives of the other. In this way, our mutual understanding of reality becomes more accurate, which in turn forms a sounder basis to formulate effective policies in the areas of regional security.
