Transformation transition has been violent destructive with genocide and severe violations of human rights and freedoms. This dynamic transformation was connected with democratization, state building and nations building of western Balkan countries and nations toward EU and NATO integrations. We will attempt to analyse numerous social and political problems that are provoking western Balkan Countries. Understanding and solving the complexity of the Western Balkan's political situation is needed. The hard will of inner political strengths and contribution of external political forces in its relations.
