CHALLENGES REGARDING SOCIETAL SECURITY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION
Societal security essentially refers to the sustainability of traditional models of language, culture, traditions, religion, and national identity, under acceptable conditions for evolution. The European Union is both a space inhabited by over 430 million inhabitants (natives, minorities, immigrants) and a space of many cultures and the manifestation of societal security. Strengthening state and societal resilience within the EU and in the neighbourhood helps to reduce and stop various security threats. National political efforts to reduce vulnerabilities, foster pluralism, coexistence and respect, as well as deepen relations with national minorities, indigenous peoples and immigrants, make a decisive contribution to strengthening societal resilience.
Through this article we want to highlight theoretical aspects of societal security, but also some challenges to social security in the European Union.
