The Importance of Geopolitics and Identity of Underdeveloped Countries in Resolving Crises in the International Community
(Vol. 5 No. 1, 2024. Security Science Journal)
Crises and crises initiated by instability in today's international relations should be viewed multidisciplinary. Theoretical approach, analysis and explanation in many ways can give some common determinants for conflict situations in general, primarily for the purpose of avoiding or overcoming them. Underdeveloped countries, as a weak geopolitical factor in the international community, have limited decision-making options in the same. This paper deals with the specifics of such countries in resolving conflict situations in the international community.

Future Wars and Their Morale in Post- and Transhumanist Discourse – Theoretical Framework
(Vol. 4 No. 2, 2023. Security Science Journal)
Armed action is a drama of mankind, which could not cope with taming the existence of will and deciding on destructive actions for a particular group, animate and inanimate matter. Humanists and social scientists have long sought answers as to what war is and what its causes are. In the meantime, new forms of armed action called conflicts other than war, asymmetric wars, and finally hybrid wars have emerged. The demand for transdisciplinary research, which sought to discover the truth as the main goal of science, seems to be still relevant. However, the multiplicity of bureaucratically established scientific disciplines can limit the exchange of expertise.
