Abstract

At the present stage, the Balkans, traditionally perceived as a territory of a geopolitical rift, are once again becoming a space of struggle between East and West, while maintaining their subjectivity in international relations. The participants of the conference «Balkan dialogue in the context of the transformation of the world order» (October 20, 2023), which brought together Russian and Serbian experts, discussed the problems of ensuring military and political security in the Balkans; issues of ontological security and their impact on the political identity of the countries of the Western Balkans; the political consequences of disputes over national autocephaly in the Balkans; the transfer to the security sphere of problems of historical memory in the Balkan states, as a factor that increases the risks of the resumption of long-standing conflicts.

Keywords

the Balkans; world order; military and political security; historical memory.
