ASSIMETRIC AND UNCONVENTIONAL CONFLICTS IN AN EVOLVING SECURITY ENVIRONMENT
The typology of the contemporary conflicts is the result of globalization’s positive and negative effects and also of the dynamics of the relations between the main international actors. Thus, we can say that while, in the last part of the 20th century and the first part of the 21st century, conflicts were influenced by the implications of unipolarity and by US status of world sole superpower, after the world gained an increasingly clear multipolar character, it’s expected that the way to conduct conflicts undergo new changes and developments. However, all these changes and developments occur gradually, maintaining certain characteristics of the prior form whether we speak about the power relationships between international actors or the conflict typology.
