The political arena has always been a mixture of “peace and war,” “compromise and conflict,” as well as “convergence and divergence.” The fact that ancient Greeks likened politics to the two-faced god of Greek mythology, Janus, is indicative of this duality. Of course, the belligerent and hazardous face of politics due to its more evident and often more unfavorable manifestations, outcomes and consequences, has usually drawn more attention and has accounted for the lion’s share of political science and literature.

Perhaps, this is why during the past decades, the issue of “management of conflicts and risks to global security” has turned into a major approach that arises from the peaceful aspect of politics, and has turned into a specialized field, which is rapidly growing. During modern times, the type, level and scope of conflicts and risks to global security have undergone major alterations due to a host of reasons. Those reasons, include the emergence of modern technologies along with profound lifestyle changes and developments in the living models of contemporary humans as a result of changes in human social relations. On the other hand, the emergence of new international actors, globalization, revolution in information and communication technology, electronic exchanges that form everyday life of humans, and dwindling importance of geographical borders have been also playing their part. As a result, attitudes, approaches, theories, methods and techniques related to this issue have likewise undergone many important changes.
