  • Madălina PREDA (DAVIDOIU) Romanian s Navy Staff

Abstract

In a geopolitical and geostrategic environment that seems to be more complex than ever, ensuring the security of the world's states becomes a leading and binding concern on the part of the political-military decision-makers. In this respect, considering the various constraints of political, economic and social nature, as well as the availability of limited resources, a reliable defence planning system should ensure the achievement of the defence policy objectives in the most effective and efficient way, seeking to make the best use of available resources. Additionally, taking into account that the defence planning process has a long-term horizon, appropriate consistency and continuity of policy objectives regarding national security must be ensured in order to avoid undesired consequences on the long run that might translate in future unacceptable security risks.
