THE NEW FORMS OF THE POWER STRUGGLE
Abstract: The strategists and the specialists in the military affairs have always been concerned with new forms of
warfare and these will always remain a vivid interest. Given the disciplinary interdependence and the complexity of the
security environment, the expression new forms of the power struggle serves to emphasize the non-military war character.
The fundamental key on which must starts any analysis is that making war is through convergence rather than through
permanent change. Hardly more we change, the songs remain the same, but the interesting thing is that the puzzle can be
constituted of the same parts in different variants. The novelty comes from the global way in which such forms are used and
from the upgrading applied.
Keywords: hybrid warfare; power struggle; asimetric threats; security; future warfare.
