The EvoCS consortium have published the second regional case study of the four to be released. The document covers South-Eastern Europe, featuring coding data for Bulgaria, Serbia and Turkey, and results from a workshop with security experts from the region.
The case study examines countries which have shown very heterogeneous perceptions of security. Despite that many surrounding aspects are similar, salience is attached to different core values and different challenges.
The main level for the security discourse is still the national one and the most prominent and active actors are the national governments but long-term solutions are missing. EvoCS analysis thus aims to mend the policy legitimacy gap and extends some policy recommendations at regional and EU level.
