Sociological and safety aspects of the geopolitical integration of the Republic of Serbia into
the EU are part of the reality the country and the society have been confronting since the beginning of
the 21st century. To single out and determine every sociological and safety factor is almost impossible
since there is no definiteness of factors affecting the positioning of a country within the association of
new countries. Neither is there any unique prototype applicable to all countries. Each country possesses
cultural, national, religious, institutional and economic uniqueness; hence, it can be concluded
that each country undergoes various experiences in the process of integration into a new institutional
family. Since the creation, the European Union by its structure has presented a challenge to the society
in all respects. This may certainly be measured and explained by sociological and safety standards.
This paper presents the past correlations of the Republic of Serbia from two decades ago to the present,
using a synthetic method to carry out a comparative analysis of the descriptive pattern, position, and
capacities of the national in relation to supranational.
