B. Kosowski - Consequential threats as a cause of delayed and distant crises

B. Kosowski - Consequential threats as a cause of delayed and distant crises

The effects of a crisis situation are usually taken into consideration from the perspective of primary threats. In practice, no assessment of losses is done in relation to threats that arise as a result of the so-called domino effect, and take the form of consequential threats. The failure to evaluate the consequences of those threats results from the fact that they emerge as a follow-up to an event caused by the original threat. However, attention should be paid to the fact that consequential threats often result in delayed or distant crisis situations in various areas of the state's performance, and their effects are then considered without linking them to an original event.
