Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the elements characteristic to the democratization process followed by the findings related to the security field. It begins by analysing the elements of continuity regarding the political culture in historical perspective and the formation of a multiparty system and the role of the parties in society. Political participation, socio-political cohesion, and the development of civil society structures are also relevant indicators referring to the emergence of a democratic political culture. The chapter also focuses on the political dimension of the security concept. It addresses the threats identified in Romania's security strategy and the people's involvement in the process of defining them. The securitizing actors, referent objects and functional actors have to be identified, together with what issues are taken into account and under what circumstances.
