Tarptautinis ir regioninis saugumas: globalizacija, žiniomis grindžiamos visuomenės kūrimasis ir nauji iššūkiai
Problems of international and regional security in the context of globalization and internationalization processes , as well as processes of knowledge based society creation are analyzed. Social, economic and political development, science and technology progress can be characterized by some distinguishing factors that are determined by increasingly intensive processes of globalization, internationalization and formation of a qualitatively new type of society - knowledge-based society. What characterizes the newly emerging knowledge-based society is that conditions off technological progress give rise to qualitatively new knowledge economy and a new type of management and administration culture, that spreads into all spheres of public sector, into the con temporary business sector and all other spheres of life of the modern society. Significance, importance and role of globalization, internationalization, knowledge-based society and knowledge economy formation processes determine a necessity to investigate profoundly these processes, to observe, follow and forecast their trajectories, to single-mindedly influence, manage them creating preconditions to real implementation of courageous and ambitious society goals. During the process of rapid formation of knowledge-based society in the environment of globalization and internationalization, social and economic development, processes of science and technology progress are determined by continually growing indeterminacy and various forms of risk: awareness of the mentioned factor allows to find a need to manage timely predict and reasonably estimate various dangers and threats that could, cause negative or differently comprehensible undesirable results of globalization, internationalization, knowledge-based society, knowledge economy formation. In both scientific researches and practical tasks intended for knowledge-based society and knowledge economy formation there is often lack of adequate evaluation of those factors and consequences that are used to express various effects of dangers and threats. In appropriate scientific researches and activities to some extent it is ignored quite significant and differently manifested national, international and regional security problems, resultant in globalization and internationalization processes' ambience and formative knowledge-based society and knowledge economy. Obviously, such problems are treated as relevant, therefore huge attention is paid for their understanding, analysis and solution. Noteworthy priorities in the sphere of scientific research: identification of society‘s security problems, therein – international, regional and national security problems ; assessment of regularities and factors characteristic for processes of globalization, social economic development, science and technology progress internationalization, knowledge-based society and knowledge economy creation , therein -from the point of view of security ; assessment of regularities and trajectories for creation of security framework in the European Union. Noteworthy priorities in the sphere of practical tasks: creation of legal, economic, organizational and informational preconditions in various levels of public policy and administration that initiated political and administrative decisions, especially strategic decisions, intended for the development and progress of society regarding factors of globalization, internationalization and knowledge-based society creation would be unconditionally evaluated regarding appropriate criteria of society‘s security; formation of analogous preconditions that political and ruling decisions, especially strategic decisions, regarding society‘s security on international as well as national levels would be evaluated as a complex regarding many specific factors reflecting various aspects of knowledge-based society creation; in the system of remedies for the social, economic and technological development should be foreseen special remedies for prevention of dangers that could occur for the security of society on international or national levels. The problem of society‘s security is considered of a high importance for creation of knowledge-based society and knowledge economy , therefore further scientific research and practical tasks in this sphere are in preference to others.
