ABSTRACT: This work examines security threats as perceived by the independent Slovak Republic based on the analysis of official state security documents and offers a reflection of the evolution of the security environment and how the Slovak Republic has confronted these. The conducted research led to the conclusion that the country’s official documents are not carbon copies of the opinions of security experts and many threats identified by experts are omitted from security documents. We argue that the absence of certain threats among experts could negatively affect the future security environment of the Slovak Republic.
