Conference on today's warfare and insecurity
Understanding hybrid threats and managing insecurity in 21st century. Conference on 18 October at the MTA in Budapest.
UNDERSTANDING HYBRID THREATS AND MANAGING INSECURITY IN 21ST CENTURY
Since the annexation of Crimea, state and non-state actors increasingly speak of ‘hybrid threats’ and ‘hybrid warfare’. The aim of this discussion is to unpack to what extent the idea of hybrid warfare is new, and how it is developing. Moreover, facing multitude of threats, it is also important to ask if and how the transatlantic community as a whole is capable of ensuring security of citizens and of critical infrastructure. How can we mitigate continuous insecurity, and is the search for ‘security’ still possible?
The event is organised by the International Republican Institute’s (IRI) Beacon Project, the Antall József Knowledge Centre (AJTK), and the Danube Institute. It is held on the sidelines of a political roundtable bringing together national and EU-level policy-makers in order to build dialogue and resilience against potential hybrid threats during the approaching 2019 European election.
