INTRODUCTION
The European Center for Peace and Development (ECPD), an international postgraduate education and research institution, with Headquarters in Belgrade, was established in 1983 as a regional European Centre of the UN University for Peace with the tasks and objectives "to organize and carry out the corresponding post-graduate studies, research activities and dissemination of knowledge which contribute to the promotion of peace, development and international cooperation". 

Pursuing these tasks and objectives, ECPD has been for 30 years actively engaged in carrying out its mandate in the territory of Helsinki Europe. Following the radical changes in Europe in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the ECPD shifted its attention primarily towards the ex-socialist/communist European countries, especially to the countries of South East Europe. The main objective of this strategic orientation was to promote peace and stability in the Balkans through organizing and conducting related educational programmes, international meetings and research activities.
