This paper argues for a broader emphasis on sustainable security and smart power, for examining both opportunities as well as threats to security. Sustainable security is a new concept in the security studies. Deep attention to all possible threats against human life is necessary for continuation of security in a sustainable and dynamic base. This aim can be achieved in a highest level by merging the negative and positive discourses of security. In the negative discourse security is required having hard power and force to encounter with deferent kinds of threat. In other words, the authority of a security system depends on its ability to confronting with hard threats. In the other hand according to positive discourse, soft power is necessary for eliminating the internal defects and encouraging the system’s values. The main question of this research is: what is the connection between smart power and sustainable security? Accordingly, our hypothesis is: there is a direct connection between smart power and sustainability of security. In fact to attain the sustainable security, soft power and hard power should be merged and create the smart power. This research recommends emphatically that systematic and network attitude, theoretically and practically, is necessary for designing and putting into effect the sustainable security. In this way we are going to use fuzzy logic and systematic attitude in a new approach called fuzzy-systematic. The results of this research are also confirming this point that using the fuzzy systems can enhance the possibility of gaining the sustainable security through smart power. The information of this article gathered by using the library and internet sources and we analyzed our data through descriptive-analytic method.
