Abstract

Most Balkan countries in their development have gone through establishments, that called themselves "national" and "humane". But after their collapse, a lot of the people faced with the harsh reality that in this country, individualism was suppressed by state and party collectivism. The law in such circumstances was not directed at the establishment of justice, but in the interest of the party elite and at the expense of disavowing the basic freedoms and rights of the people. This has left lasting consequences in the further development of these countries. The transition to democracy and the rule of law for their citizens was a painful experience, filled with ethnic conflicts, partocracy, highly dubious transformation of property, a living standard on the edge of existence, selective justice and captured judiciary, migration processes of young people to more developed countries and numerous other negative phenomena that marked their long transitional period of a path to a more justifier society. Such experiences have called into question the development perspectives of most Balkan countries for evolving into real civil societies, where law will be in the service of justice and citizens. Keywords:Transition societies, legality, legitimacy, rule of law.
