The concept of security today frequently includes a whole set of different aspects of human existence and activity in society and nature. Conscious efforts to establish security is a civilisational and cultural category which encompasses all aspects of contemporary security such as economic, social, cultural, political, legal, ecological and defensive, i.e all those manifestations of social life which come under the heading of social values. The efficiency of national security system today not only testifies to the capacity of the state to protect its fundamental social values from external and internal perils i.e. to preserve peace and liberty, prevent danger and fear, but also to its ability to ensure economic, political, scientific, technological and generally social development as well as people’s social, cultural, ecological prosperity. Analyzing the national security of the Republic of Croatia in that context, it seems that not only has the process of democratic transition not been completed, but it has not properly commenced. In many areas the institutions and relations that might guarantee the type of development in keeping with Croatia’s diverse potentials have not been created. Croatia, as one of the last transitional countries is only at the beginning of the second alteration of government, the precondition for the consolidation of a democratic regime.
