          The issue opens with the text written by Jelena Babic, in which she explains the changes in the institutional structure of  the EU in the field of the Common Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (CFSP) brought about by the Lisbon Treaty. The text by Dragana Djurasinovic focuses on ‘’the most democratic’’ of all EU institutions - the European Parliament. The author analyses, on the example of the EP’s oversight over 6 military operations undertaken under the CFSP, whether the Lisbon Treaty has actually granted this institution with the authorities and powers necessary for such operations. This is followed by the text written by Marko Savkovic, which looks at the very sensitive issue of the (possible) development of a joint defence industry (armament and military equipment) at the EU level. Are the member states ready for joint actions in this field? Why does the US still invest six times more money in the research and development of the defence industry than the EU does? What is the role of the European Defence Agency in all this? - these are some of the key questions to which the author provides the answers. At the end of this part of the magazine, Sasa Djordjevic looks at the dilemmas that exist about the EU internal security concept and its application in the creation of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice.

          The second part of this issue is dedicated to some of contemporary dilemmas that Europe, or the EU, is faced with and which inevitably influence the perception of the EU security policies, though not necessarily related to them. In her article, Elena Kulinska analyses the success of the extreme right in several EU states and tries to predict their future. Igor Novakovic focuses on Bulgaria as a case-study and demonstrates how unnatural the coalition of one extreme right party and the ruling party of the right centre really is. The editor of this issue looks at the current issue of the Turkish public opinion regarding the EU membership, i.e., the problems this issue might entail in the future. This issue ends with two book reviews: Nikola Lakic wrote about Iver Neumann’s book, ‘’The Meaning, Materiality, Power: Introduction to Discourse Analysis’’, and Luka Glusac closes the issue with the review of ‘’ Lobbying the European Union: Institutions, Actors and Issues’’. The authors of the book answer the questions: who to lobby, how and when, in order to represent the interests of your country, region or a company in Brussels in the best possible manner.
