Defence and Security Monitor, a Mediafax media product, is organizing, on 20th of November, the national conference "Continuity and discontinuity in Romania’s defence strategy during the 100 years since Romania’s Great Union". The event is organized in partnership with the National Defence Ministry. The conference will be attended by military and civil academic representatives, state's institutions personalities, diplomats, parliamentarians, ex-Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Businesses, representatives of the business field and the defence industry.


The conference aims to put in perspective the conceptual differences and the theoretical converges of national security’s evolution, following the transformations which have marked its historical moments in the past hundreds of years. The debate will try to identify national security’s characteristics in each period, the defining influences over its manifestation, the dominating thinking directions, the strategic expression formats, institutionalization solutions and the communication methods of its main benchmarks. Therewith, we will approach the dynamic of the national security concept, starting from its realistic-military meaning to contemporary ideological, technological or social incongruences dilemmas.
