ABSTRACT

This article is an attempt to assess regional security systems dynamics from the standpoint of their political structure specifics. Relying on the theoretical-methodological instruments of neorealism and the theory of regional security complexes the author identifies the concept of (in)stability of a regional security system and its three key parameters: weakness/strength of the regions states; (a)symmetry of strength; and (a)symmetry of vulnerability among them and (im)maturity of their mutual relations.

Keywords: the regional security system, political structure, structural (in)stability, neorealism, the theory of regional security complexes.
