IT4Sec Reports 92 is an internal deliverable within the FOCUS project summarising the input by CSDM and CESS (Centre for European Security Strategies) to working package 6.1. It suggests a way to describe future EU roles as a global security actor. It then provides a comprehensive analysis of the principal trends in global security and identifies essential drivers of change, examining also specific challenges and strategic shocks that may steer global developments to one or another alternative future. Finally, it presents a framework for exploring EU global security roles, incorporating a concept of the global EU power and examination of the external-internal nexus in the EU Common Foreign and Security Policy.
