Balkan Region - An Inseperatible part of European Society

The proposed report consists of two parts.

In the first part the author makes a laconic review of the actual state of Association of philosophers from South-Eastern Europe who was created in 2001 year in Bulgaria. The Association promotes and supports an integrated interdisciplinary approach to a wide range of problems and issues of the humanities. The Association realized 7 regional conferences after its creation. Our conferences contribute for the successful development of science and the forming of universal European spiritual and cultural velues. A philosophical analysis is proposed on specificity of the so-called Balkan mentality, as well as an multi-ethnical patern of developing the modern Balkan society.

The second part of the report is devoted to the last research project of our association "Conflicts and tolerance on the Balkans". This project is interdisciplinary and in the its realization participate many sociologists from all Balkan countries together with their collegues philosophers.
