Economic Security - Organic Dimension of National Security

Listed author(s):
  • Rotaru, Marius-Petre

Initially an attribute of the state, carrying a single meaning, namely the lack of military conflict, the notion of “security” has evolved in time from its traditional significance, where the emphasis was on the military dimension, to the conflict arising among countries and threats against state borders, up to the modern sense, where several other dimensions, namely economic, social, political, environmental, are taken into consideration. The problematic concerning security is not to be mistaken with the state’s normal functioning along these dimensions, but it exclusively refers to those threats, which, within the limits of the above-mentioned dimensions, jeopardize the existence of the state itself. The connections between economy and security, in the context of a multicultural international background, generates important, significant aspects. The complexity of economic security comes from the implications of a multitude of processes and economic, social and financial phenomena, and as a result of globalization, seen both as a process, as well as a phenomenon, which interacts systematically and continuously on national economy. Its dynamics owes to the frantic rhythm of economic processes and phenomena, which appear at national and global levels alike.
