ABSTRACT
The article discusses security risk for Central and Eastern Europe. The main concern is both internal and external terrorism which are linked to European involvement with U.S. military operations overseas. The main terrorist groups posing threats are the al-Qaeda, which have launched attacks on London, England and the ETA, a Basque separatist group based in Spain. Organized crime groups, the Mafia, arms and drug traffickers contribute to criminal activities. However, Croatia's business environment continues to improve due to foreign investments.
