The main purpose of this article is the evaluation of security aspects of the Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe. More precisely, it is an analysis and evaluation of the results of Working Table III of the Pact in the context of security problems in that region. The article will first present the fundamental regulations of the charter of the Stability Pact. After that, it will examine basic geographic, political and economic characteristics of South Eastern Europe (SEE), as these have a great impact on the stability of the region. It will then systematically present the results of the first year of operation of Working Table III within the context of the stability of SEE. The point is not to determine whether the Pact has fulfilled its mission to provide the region with safety, since a single year is certainly an insufficient period of time for such a judgement. The main point of the article is to present the range and importance of the security issues in the SEE region in relation to the amount of effort the international community is making to find a solution that will keep the SEE region more politically and economically stable, and therefore ready to be integrated into Western European structures. The final section will sum up the most important findings of this research.
