The paper examines contemporary foreign factors and processes that influence religious and ethnical identity of the population in the Rhodopes. Some accents in international affairs at global, European and regional level are stressed, as they "make tighter" the typical "plural" identity of the region. The one accent examines the influence of the globalization process and the increased mobility of citizens, that create "open minded" consciousness and carry in new arguments in the researching and shaping out of different identities. They pile up on old interpretations and dynamic the self-awareness of self. The second accent is connected with the contemporary international conflicts in Middle East and South Africa, that provoke activation of the Islamic factor. The aftermaths of that strengthen the Islamic values and parties in regional aspect and "invisibly" affect the consolidation of Muslim communities outside of the specific region - including Bulgaria as well. The third accent has specific Balkan dimension and examines the influence of regional factors and processes. It includes the influence of South-Eastern Europe conflicts, driven by the disintegration of Yugoslavia, which activates the Islamic factor as well and consolidate the Muslim communities. That accent observes the increased international prestige of Turkey, analyses the significance of the country as a economical factor and its political engagement with the Muslims in The Balkan states, as it definitely affects and "make tighter" one of the ethnical identities of the population of Rhodopes - the self-determination as Turkish.
