The countries of South-Eastern Europe are under a massive political, economic and religious influence from the EU, Russia, China, America and the Arab states. International conflicts of interest are played out in the Balkan “stadium”. To what extent will the Balkan countries be able to remain sovereign, and what perspectives will they adopt to utilise their historical routine of fashioning something new out of a crisis?
