BARTOLOME, Mariano César. Hybrid Conflicts and Threats: Main Features, its Evolution across Time and Preponderant Forms. URVIO [online]. 2019, n.25, pp.8-23. ISSN 1390-4299.

In the field of contemporary international security, the “hybridization” of armed conflicts and transnational threats has a high level of priority, demanding constant attention from specialists. This article analyzesthreats coming from actors that choose hybrids ways of warfare, and alsothe combination of at least two different and autonomous threats. An updated framework about this issue, which reflects the state of the art, including nonwestern views, is presented.The first objective is to identify the singularity of hybrid conflicts, and its differences with previousforms of armed conflicts, fixing the problems produced both by an unrestricted use of concepts and certain semantic proliferation. The second objective, which complements the former, seeks to identify the most common expressions of hybrid threats in today´s international relations framework.The conclusionsaddress if hybrid conflicts and threats are present in Latin America and, in an affirmative case, what is the degree of preparation of the States to fight these problems.
