Since the Baltic states joined NATO and the EU in 2004, a number of security policies have been enacted. Today, international security is being challenged not only by transnational threats, domestic or interstate conflicts but also by hybrid threats. These threats, including energy as a tool of hybrid warfare, are engaged by certain governments as a tool to enforce interests or to manipulate positions onto other states. These illegitimate ways of external influence need to be addressed. NATO, the EU and other intergovernmental organizations have been trying to deal with these contemporary challenges to international security. But, the West and its allies are far from being unified in its approach. The discussion will focus on different types of hybrid challenges, including cyber and energy related threats.
