Opis wydarzenia

The full-scale military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine has changed the architecture of international security, and has also served as a reminder of how serious a threat hybrid actions are to state and international security. Cyber-attacks, information warfare, instrumentalisation of migratory movements, fuelling anti-refugee sentiment or acts of sabotage targeting the critical infrastructure of NATO and EU states are just examples of the broad spectrum of Russian activity.

Hybrid activities not only expose Western states to further dangers, but can also destabilise their functioning. Their multidimensionality provokes an in-depth debate on new challenges to national and international security. The term hybrid threat, in turn, refers to an action taken by states and non-state actors with the aim of destabilising or harming the object of attack through the combined use of overt and covert means, both military and non-military.

Unprecedented hybrid attacks are constantly being experienced by, for example, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, repelling aggressive disinformation activities and provocations against officers and soldiers involved in stopping illegal border crossing attempts organised by the Belarusian regime with the support and approval of the Kremlin. The cynical hybrid operation is part of Russia's long-term and hostile strategy against the West. This is accompanied by another wave of economic shock in global markets. Economic sanctions, energy and food crises, inflation in many countries, unstable financial markets, currency fluctuations, are creating new challenges with a direct impact on the contemporary security environment. In public discourse, more and more attention is being paid not only to the necessary crisis mitigation measures, but also to maintaining unity in allied and community structures.

The aim of the conference is to identify, analyse and assess the challenges and threats emerging at various levels of security in the context of hybrid warfare, in the military, political, economic, cyber, information, environmental and social areas, as well as to attempt to make forecasts in these areas. The complexity of the issues addressed will also contribute to the exchange of scientific and practical experience in diagnosing changes in the national and international security environment, as well as raising the level of awareness and knowledge in this area. An additional objective is to integrate the scientific community and stimulate interdisciplinary debate on the current and future security environment.
