Summary/Abstract: The evolution of international relations, the turbulence and acceleration of both integration and fragmentation of the International World Order lead to unexpected and unconventional forms and types of threats to national and international security. Some come from the technological development, some from the impact of technologies on our societies, some others from the rise of populism and identities, and last but not least, from our own minds and perceptions that are influenced dramatically by our preconceptions and easiness of the rational thinking. All these have a huge impact on the new threat assessment, on the security and defence of a nation. That is why such facts need to be explored, known and approached in a scientific and comprehensive manner in order to prevent strategic surprise in the mentioned areas and the emergence of new types of conflicts.
