Abstract

All Western Balkan countries (WBCs) are interested to became a members of the European Union (EU). One of the basic preconditions for that is the rule of law and advancement of human rights and freedoms, whose standards should be harmonized with the European legislation. In that direction, the convergence of the legal culture and legal awareness in the WBCs is necessary, which are still influenced by their own traditions from the past and by the former legal and political order in which they existed. In that direction is the basic paradigm of this paper - to determine whether and to what extent the European integration processes of the WBCs contribute to changing the legal awareness and legal culture of their citizens and other relevant stakeholders in society, in the direction of accepting new value orientations and norms of behavior, which will lead to the promotion of human rights and freedoms and the standards of justice and security, as a basic precondition for a truly just and humane society. Key words: Western Balkan countries, European integration processes, convergence of legal culture and legal awarenes
