    Data shows a declining percent of states bound together in defence pacts. At the same time, new forms of security arrangements are created by the state governments. The paper focuses on regional security arrangements. It proposes to interpret the decreasing interest of governments in making new pacts of military alliances and the increasing interest in creating regional security partnership arrangements as a substantial change in international security practice. After defining the concept of regional security partnership – in opposition to the concepts of military pact and security community - the paper examines NATO’s and EU’s adaptation to the present European security partnership which took form and developed along with the long experience of the Helsinki Process.
