The Western Balkans is a region that is at the same time one of the migrant routes from the war-affected areas to the EU countries. Recent decades in the world have seen an increase in the number of terrorist attacks, which culminated in the attack on the Twin Towers of the 9/11 in the United States. In major cities across Europe, there has been a series of bombings and other attacks, particularly with the onset of the major migrant crisis in 2015. Armed conflicts in the areas of North Africa and the Middle East are still the main generator of the refugee wave, with new terrorist attacks. Although the increase in the number of attacks and migration leads to the link of research, they say the opposite. An effective counter terrorism and the elimination of the consequences of an attack implies, at the same time, the reaction of states on the national level, as well as international criminal law cooperation between states and organizations at the regional and global level. In the first pa...rt of the article, the authors briefly referred to the (un)defined notion of terrorism, then examining migration on the route of the Western Balkans and ultimately pointed to the legal and institutional mechanisms of criminal law cooperation of the countries of the Region in counter terrorism.
