Beginning of 21st century has been characterised by new forms of international politics in creating of new national states, regional and global ideas, movements based on principles of economy, security, policy, culture, and other forms of unification. In post cold-war era new challenges and threats to global and regional security took place. In past period most of threats was from other countries, but today non state actors are important in creation of security discourse. Transnational organised crime in contemporary international relations is one of primarily security threat to national, regional and global environment, destabilizing basics in societal, economical, political and human values. In global and open environment crime activities actors are cross linking and becoming „actors without sovereignty“ that used defects in national and supra-national security systems. This means that all countries are exposed to this threats but especially post-war and post-conflict countries in transition that are trying to fight back with traditional security instruments. Within this group is surely Bosnia and Herzegovina because its system of inner security is divided and complicated which gives a big chances for development of activities in transnational organised crime.
