The conference “Unknown Wars” is dedicated to the concept of global threats and phenomena directly bonded to them. The events of recent years have demonstrated that major changes are happening with more frequency. We live in the context of global threats: hybrid wars, epidemics, pandemics, political and economic crises, and military conflicts. On the other hand, global threats set a whole chain of subsequent transformations in motion, and this process does not stop. All this demands entirely new approaches in business/security/production/science and other sectors that satisfy the parameters of our current times.
An individual who finds himself in the context of a global threat becomes a consequence of this “unknown war.” In such circumstances, the “rules of the game” are unknown, there are no precise forecasts, and the main question becomes “what to do?” However, to find the answer, it is critical to understand what we are in fact dealing with.
For this purpose, the European Academy of Sciences of Ukraine organized an international interdisciplinary conference, “Unknown Wars,” which will address the problems of global threats on an academic level.
