MILITARY THEORY AND ART
Contemporary military phenomenon: challenges and trends
This section seeks to point out the complex interaction between theory and practice in the military field, by reffering to the main concept and technologies leading to the evolution of military strategy throughout history.
INTELLIGENCE AND SECURITY
Innovation, the main driver of change in the field of security and defence
The relation between intelligence and the concept of (national and international) security is meant to explain and promote common defence policies, generated following the decisions taken during the NATO Summits of the last decade and at the European Union level. A new arms race, asymmetric threats, cyber security or impact of artificial intelligence on security are only a few of the aspects that have led to reviewing the priorities of international actors, in the field of security and defence.
DEFENCE RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
Smart Defence: from initiative to operational concept
The pace of change and transformation involved by the new revolution in military affairs has increased lately, especially in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks. Although the essence of war has not changed, the forms and procedures of military action, armed fight included, have evolved, depending on the features of the strategic security environment, forces, means, weapon systems, policies and strategies.
The evolution of Romanian Military Thinking in the past 160 years
In terms of strategic thinking, things are uncertain these days. A set of questions can become rather enlightening for a solid foundation in knowledge. Is there still a dominant school of military thinking at world level? Is the new paradigm of strategic and military thinking actually a return to the old paradigm? Are there reasons to believe in the Clausewitzian war, in which the principles of the Prussian General can still prove their efficiency? These questions continue to remain unanswered in a world in which the role of the state continues to be important.
