This paper, from the legal point of view, represents the opinion that Stabilization and Association Agreements are “relatively new” instruments in the sense of their creation and duration, but they are by their nature and their content just a modified version of association agreements which had been concluded by the European Community since 1960, especially in regard to so called “Europa agreements”, concluded from 1990 to 1996. From the political point of view, the paper represents the opinion that the foreign policy of the EU after the Treaty of Lisbon is based on the principles and instruments thorough which the EEC and EC had established external relations in earlier period. What distinguishes SAA contracts from traditional international agreements is their relation to community law and legal status in EU law, as well as in the law of associated state. In this sense, paper is divided into three parts. The first part describes the political framework which preceded and which launched the Stabilization and Association process. The second part describes the process of stabilization and association through analyses of process of association as framework for stabilization and association agreement. The third part of this paper provides a legal status of the SAA in legal order of the country of association.
