Summary/Abstract: The Balkan Peninsula has represented, over the course of time, a region characterized by instability and social, political, and military unrest. The existence of a large number of ethnic groups, within a complex mixture of religions, culture and traditions, on a relatively small teritory, has allowed interethnic conflicts after the end of the Cold War. The problems in the Balkan Peninsula, over the course of time, also had and still have an important impact on Romania, both from the economic and security standpoint. Romanian perception of the Yugoslav crisis manifested differently from the people in power to the opposition, from the mass-media to the simple citizen. Romanian perception of the Kosovo crisis was different, depending primarily on the interest of each of the subjects analyzed.
