SOCIETAL SECURITY IN THE CURRENT CONTEXT

  • Octavian Victor Mihail DIMA SOCIETAL SECURITY IN THE CURRENT CONTEXT

Abstract

 

The paper analyses the threats that affect the societal dimension of modern security that are a product of the regionalization and integration movements present in the European Union. Knowing the fact that modern security cannot look at the international arena strictly using state-centered lenses and in terms of military threats, the Copenhagen School has developed an extended security concept based on security sectors and the theory of securitization. In this context a special sector of security - called societal security - has been developed to address the ability of a society to persist in its essential character. This article is focused on introducing the societal security concept and analyzing its mining in the current geopolitical context.
