Changes in the security situation in Europe after the fall of the Iron Curtain and the collapse of SFR Yugoslavia imposed the need to Macedonia to establish and to continue to redefine national security policy, in conjunction with regional and wider security developments. Therefore, the time period covered in this study includes analysis of 22 years of independent Republic of Macedonia (1991-2013). The analysis is focused on the situation arising from the relationship of the state to the core issues related to the management of national security. In the same timeframe, the national security concept - as the main subject of the research, is analyzed in terms of: Euro-Atlantic security integration, dealing with inter-ethnic tensions and the impact of continuing political instability (as part of daily social events). In fact, the main thesis of the paper is focused on the impact of cited factors (interethnic relations, Euro-Atlantic integration processes and political instability) on the security situation in the country and the paper represent a try to give answers on how the state and the security system in general have real capacity to identify and cope with these security risks.
