FUNCTIONS OF THE STATE IN THE BUILDING OF SECURITY SYSTEM
At the beginning of the 21st century, as before, security is the first and basic concern of the state, of modern interpretation of political theories and international relations. The establishment of national policies as a security policy implies thinking about creating special disciplines that will complete the necessity of the security philosophy. Starting from the previous definitions of the political system and the security system, they are understood as two separate systems primarily because their relationship and mutual influences could be observed, especially through the management that is realized in both systems. This does not negate one of the generally accepted findings of political theory: that the security system is, in a broader sense, an integral part of the political system, and in functional terms, its instrument. So, viewed from the political aspect, the essence of the security function could be expressed as a contribution to the binding nature of decisions and norms produced by the political system, i.e. security exists to ensure respect for decisions and norms of the political system in society. measure of coercion. In addition to this mediating role, security has a more explicit role for the political system: it is a source of support and support for the political system. Thus, its role would also refer to the protection of the institutions of the political system and ensuring their unhindered functioning. However, the security function, in addition to being oriented to the logic of the political system (ie the needs and requirements of that system), also serves the whole society, which arises from the understanding of the security function as a social function and security as a form of social control. The state has a protective function from the very beginning, regardless of whether we understand it as an independent function or as part of a unique function of the state.
