Dima, Nicholas. The Black Sea Region: New Economic Cooperation Old Geopolitics. Journal of Social Political and Economic Studies 28:77-96 Spring 2003.
The Black Sea is strategically located between southeast Europe and Asia Minor and it connects its littoral countries to the Mediterranean Sea and the world beyond. In 1992, after the collapse of communism and the break-up of the former Soviet Union, at Turkey's initiative the countries of this region signed a declaration that set up the Black Sea Economic Cooperation bloc (BSEC). The new organization was confronted, however, with problems of cultural diversity, economic stagnation, and opposing geopolitical agendas. Turkey desired to expand its influence in the area and pushed for increased economic cooperation. Russia sought to perpetuate its political and military domination. Romania and Bulgaria pursued a policy of Euro-Atlantic integration., Ukraine and Georgia sought to assert their newly found independence from Moscow, while NATO adopted open-door policies with the intention of expanding into the region.

Molnar,Thomas  . The Next Area of Unrest: East Central Europe Modern Age 46:43 Winter 2004.
The end of Yugoslavia as a power in the Balkans might be signaling a temporary lull, but by no means a quiet future in the area. Communism and Marxist thinking are no longer ruling over lands and minds, yet they have left behind them signs of deep unrest, a state of undeclared conflicts. And while Marxism and Communism are no longer topics, the old national and social antagonisms are not solved, they only look for other channels of manifesting repressed aspirations.
