Diversification rationality against securitization?

What do we speak of when we speak of ‘hybrid warfare’, a term that has become prominent in discussions of Czech and European security?

Protester-Police Fraternization in the 2013 Gezi Park Uprisings
The number of anti-regime protests is significantly rising across the globe. Social media is often filled with videos and images showing police brutality targeting demonstrators.
