Abstract:
The 21st century has presented us with not easy challenges for society. The global security strategy has entered a new era following the September 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. Breaking the real estate bubble in 2008 caused massive losses for international banks and investors, leading to a severe financial crisis and an impending recession. The Arab Spring was marked by demonstrations in the Islamic world in the early 2010s. The refugee crisis followed as millions of people migrated from the Middle East to Europe. A new challenge came at the end of 2019 when a contagious virus triggered the Covid-19 pandemic leading to a global health crisis. When we thought that everything was back to normal, the appearance of the military conflict on the borders of Romania led to the deepening of the energy and food crisis, creating premises for the beginning of a new economic recession. This international context has led to new challenges for Romania, and paradigm shifts in EU security policies and strategies have created favorable conditions for updating the legislative framework on national defense policies, including the approval of Romania’s new Cyber Security Strategy.
