ROMANIAʼS PLACE AND ROLE ON COHEN՚S MODEL OF COOPERATIVE SECURITY
Romania's desire to secure its security guarantees at regional and international level has been permanently crystallized at conceptual and executive level through its national defence strategies, as well as through the sustained contribution the Romanian Armed Forces have had in the last two decades supporting UN, NATO or EU efforts for ensuring regional and international security and stability.
Consequently, Romania has joined the states that want not only to benefit, but also to actively contribute to ensuring international security within the framework defined by international treaties and conventions. In this regard she has steadily sought to calibrate its own strategies for defence on the conceptual footing of streamlining the process of international security, stability and prosperity in order to outline, secure, credit and legitimize its own position in this process, both regionally and internationally.
In the context defined by the presence of increasingly diverse challenges in the international security environment, Cohen's model might represent for Romania an opportunity to advance the idea of initiating and developing legitimate security communities through regional cooperation within the main Euro-Atlantic maritime basins, so as to streamline the process of ensuring international security.
Keywords: regional security; security communities; regional cooperation; regional stability.
