Homeland Security and the "Border is Honor" Concept

Date: Issue 130 - May 2024

The need for security has been a concern since the dawn of humanity, ranking high among fundamental needs. From the earliest times, security has been sought through various methods and strategies, initially achieved through local and national measures. However, as mutual requirements emerged, the concept of security expanded beyond borders, becoming an international concern.

In today's world, the shift from a unipolar world order to a multipolar one has led to the evolution of security threats and risks, which have evolved from being one-dimensional and symmetric to becoming multidimensional, asymmetric, and less predictable. It is crucial to consider the regional and global impacts of security, as it cannot be achieved solely by protecting national borders. The concept of security now encompasses changes in neighboring countries and threats that may arise anywhere in the world.
