Summary/Abstract: Dealing with contemporary security challenges suggests that our thoughts should focus on current social and political processes that shape our reality. Thinking about security challenges is not random; we can easily say that this is the result of the negative nexus of social and political events that we are facing within our lives for so many years. Consequences that exhaust our community and undermine the overall quality of life are clearly visible. Irresponsible actions followed by poorly conceived social policies have not produced a healthy or secure society, making overall safety very questionable. Unfortunately, and almost without exception, this problem is more than evident in all countries in transition. Even a cursory observation of the social relationships in the public domain shows that they have become a source of deep existential insecurity and dissatisfaction among citizens, especially as it relates to what is still standing in phenomenology of the political sphere, where existing policy stirs up a sense of fear and uncertainty. BiH society, full of paradoxes, has ratified many important human rights documents, but this is more “ceremonial”, because in reality these principles are “decoupled” from everyday practice (Cole,2012).
