Of particular note, Europe has emerged as the leading spender globally in the military ground vehicle market. In addition to an ongoing migrant crisis, Europe is at pains to guard itself against a resurgent Russian threat, following its intervention in Ukraine 4 years ago. Given the versatility of roles, speed and mobility that armoured vehicles can provide an armed force, it is therefore unsurprising that Eastern Bloc nations are prioritising the modernisation of their mechanised units.

The Day of the Military Divers



The contemporary world is confronted with an ever-increasing number of international issues that cannot be exclusively managed at state-level. Countries are called to seek collective approaches to address these challenges, diplomacy being an essential component in their endeavors. Most of these global problems endanger critical infrastructures, and need continuous attention which translates into incessant international cooperation in dealing with them. New types of diplomacy, such as cyber and CIP diplomacy are being created in response to the changing needs of our interconnected, digitalized society, generating the need to examine and explore the developments of this new strand of the diplomatic process. In the information-saturated 21st century, the most compelling narrative is set to win the day. Moreover, diplomats are not only spending more of their time in cyberspace, they are also, should the need arise, conducting an increasing amount of their activities outside the headquarters, often in conditions of substantial insecurity or serious underdevelopment.
