Past Events
Understanding hybrid threats and managing insecurity in 21st century. Conference on 18 October at the MTA in Budapest.
PUBLIC DISCUSSION:
 
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.
