The development of this true scourge in the whole world demands a more accurate knowledge and documentation on the emergence, development, operation, motivation that underlies terrorist actions, as well as a knowledge of the funding of these terrorist groups. Considering the fact that this scourge has existed since antiquity and the Middle Ages, so it has a true “history”, developed gradually in the 1700s, it has experienced a real “explosion” since 1968, reaching the peak in 2001, it is necessary that those entitled to know in depth this “phenomenon” and if they can not eradicate it, at least to unite their efforts at an international level and limit it as much as possible. At global level, there are sufficient determinants, but also reasons for this phenomenon to have a continuous development, and we are taking in consideration the continuous development of the armaments industry and the misguided policies of some governments.

We need a brief assessment of the international security environment in order to have a more realistic picture of the world we live in, having the perspective of threats, risks and vulnerabilities. The current and future security environment is characterized, among other things, by its complexity of actors, dynamism of threats as a result of the rethinking of the political-military postures of some states with military potential ore emerging states and non-state actors. In the foreseeable future, the security environment will continue to be influenced by multiple challenges, risks and threats, caused by the globalization phenomenon and political, economic, military and technological interdependencies which can provoke strategic surprises. The European area is in a continuous process of transformation with strategic implications. The systemic transformation will affect the European states and their adjacent regions visibly but distinctly, but the impact on European and Romanian security will be differentiated in the long run.
