About this book

In this book, leading academics and policy practitioners develop approaches for managing critical contemporary and emerging security challenges for South East Europe. They attempt to conceptualize and realize security as a cooperative endeavour for collective good, in contrast to security narratives driven by power and national egotism.

Reviews

"This is the right book at the right time about the right place. By taking a functional approach the book places South-East Europe in the much-needed context of the twenty-first century's rapidly changing strategic environment."

- Julian Lindley-French, Eisenhower Professor of Defence Strategy, Netherlands Defense Academy, Strategic Advisory Panel, UK Chief of Defence Staff and Strategic Advisors Group

"This book is an invaluable resource to understanding the most complex security challenges facing nations of South East Europe and the world." - Karl A. Lamers, Deputy Chairman of the Defence Committee of the German Parliament and President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly

"Shaping South East Europe's Security Community for the Twenty First Century brings together a diversity of highly qualified academics and senior policy practitioners to explore critical traditional and non-traditional security challenges in South East Europe. As the region remains in flux, the book will no doubt contribute to the development of a regional security community, highlighting challenges shared among South East European nations and the global community. It is a timely effort and provides a unique source for university courses and graduate seminars as well as for policymakers." - Mustafa Aydin, Rector and Professor of International Relations at Kadir Has University, Instanbul and President of the International Relations Council of Turkey

"Through this comprehensive study of both traditional and new security sources and threats, addressing both academic specialists and political decision makers, the authors point to the importance of regional cooperation and strengthening mutual trust among the people of South East Europe in order to overcome the pervasive legacy of past conflict. The tremendous work of this distinguished group of highly qualified contributors aims to elaborate approaches to preserve regional stability and peace within South East Europe and the wider transatlantic and global communities." - Dragan Simi?, Professor of International Relations and Security in the Faculty of Political Science, University in Belgrade, Serbia

"South East Europe remains torn between the quest for peace and democracy, and a past legacy of conflict and violence. This book has the merit to assemble the contributions of many experts in the numerous fields of security in Southeast Europe, and contribute to clarifying intentions and approaches for the future." - Lieutenant-General (Ret.) Fabio Mini (Italian Army), former Chief of Staff of the NATO Allied Forces of Southern Europe and Commander of the Kosovo-Force (KFOR)

"The book is a must-read for policymakers and scholars who study the forces shaping South East Europe. Drawing on a wealth of expertise, this work brings critical issues into sharp focus as it redefines the debate about the areas of greatest concern to policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic. Facing our current economic and security challenges, this is an immensely important book that helps us understand why South East Europe remains central to international security." - William C. Martel, PhD, Associate Professor of International Security Studies, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, USA
