WHY A DILEMMA
Security has been an imperative for all civilizations known in history. If the progress of the societies is followed, it is impossible to find evidence for shaping and structuring of any community, having existed in a certain period of time, without having an urging need to organize a protection system for its own values. In doing so, there has also been a tendency to build a security strategy as one of the basic functions that the stability of the society cannot be achieved without. This is one of the basic reasons why the security, as one of the fundamental prerequisites for the development of the society, is placed in the focus of the scientific discussions of the academic circles, but also of the wider public as well.
The analysis of the existing internal, bilateral and international relations of the sates on the inhabited continents leads to the conclusion that any (positive or negative)
influence on the security in one area produce triggers a series of security reactions in another area. The dynamic nature of the globalization brings about a change of the security management depending on the political, cultural or economic influences. The need for change was recognized immediately after the attacks against the USA on 11/09/2012.
Particularly interesting is the comparison of the individual with the national security, where by definition the freedom and the security of the individual are exploited in
the interest of the state (the nation). The strongest argument for this is the existence of the armed forces which consist of its own citizens. This particularly stands for the states where compulsory military service is complied with.
The widely supported maxim that security has no cost has not prevented the restrictive interventions in the defense and military budgets in the last two decades. Such a
trend has resulted in the endeavors to enhance the civilian power, with a belief that the decreasing of the military potential can be compensated with increased practice of
diplomatic and economic activities. One of the first steps in this direction was made by the EU at the Helsinki Summit in December 1999 by adopting the non-military crisis
management Action Plan which has set in motion a series of other initiatives aimed at reinforcing the civilian component in the context of improved security.
However, the week (unsuccessful) states that continually threaten the stability, development and peace in certain geographical regions still leave the dilemma opened
