Abstracts
The main consideration of this paper is the change of nature of the world order, and the difficulties arising from the transformation of war into conflict. The paper attempts to research the effects these changes inflict on the army. The coming of the postmodern era brings new challenges for both the state and the army. Thus it is
considered important to redefine the army’s traditional mission. Posmodern conflicts and a change from enemy’ risks to non-military threats include many duties for which the conventional armies are ill-prepared. At the end of the Cold War era security agendas presented them with a large number of non-military tasks, such as
peacekeeping, peacemaking, natural disasters management, and humanitarian interventions. It is to be expected that the greatest challenge will be connected to the switch from training for war to training to prevent war, or, more precisely, to prevent conflict. The situation is even more complex from the perspective of post-Communist states. While these states face the difficulties of social transition, their armies are not in an enviable position, facing, at present, several challenges: they still have to develop their identities, legitimacies and strategic perspectives. Since the primary
mission of former Communist armed forces was aimed at performing internal social control functions (i.e., defending the regime from its internal enemies) all these armies face great challenges of acquiring new roles and new tasks.
