Sažetak The author analyzes political, social and economic movements in the countries of Southeast Europe, the concept of integrating the region of West Balkans, then the connection of this region as a whole with the EU, the policy of the leading world powers, especially the United States of America and Great Britain, problems in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Kosovo. The author believes that Croatia is unjustly stopped on its individual way towards a full membership in the European Union. Croatia completely fulfi ls the conditions on the basis of which some transitional countries have already joined the EU, and some like Romania and Bulgaria, will be admitted before Croatia. In Croatia there is a consensus of the ruling coalition of political parties, as well as all opposition parties, about the acceptance of European standards and programs in order to join the EU as soon as possible. This is why the postponement of the start of negotiations between Croatia and the EU on a full membership caused disappointment with Croatian citizens and the change of political atmosphere. This was received as an injustice. There has been an increased number of citizens who believe, disappointed by the behavior of the EU, that Croatia needs to fi nd an alternative policy and search for a perspective outside the EU, if the EU does not change its attitude towards Croatia.
