Abstract

After the World War I Romania was forced to rethink its national security architecture. Romania reacted then and continues to react to preserve the national interest in relation with the countries of the region. To ensure the country’s security and national integrity. Attempting to put in place a security mechanism for regional security, Romanian diplomacy was active in building a system of treaties with the neighbouring states. Consequently, the Romanian Secret Service (SSI) played a key role in the prevention and countering of revisionist actions and domestic risk factors. This study provides an analysis on the interrelated domains of action of the interwar Romanian intelligence and diplomacy, in order to generate a corpus of knowledge, essential for the intelligence field, known under the generic title of "lessons learned".

Keywords: national interest, diplomacy, intelligence, revisionist actions
