After the system change in 1989/90 ethnicity problems, which had been contained so far, erupted in South Eastern Europe (Balkans). The former Yugoslavia has disintegrated in 1991, resulting in creation of new small countries and subsequent fierce ethnicity conflicts. The Stabilization and Association process (Sap), initiated by the EU in 1999, shows the prospect of the EU accession and contributes to regional cooperation and integration of the South Eastern Europe, especially Western Balkans.
