In line with the European Security Strategy and based on an assessment of relevant policy documents, ESRIF perceives a broad spectrum of threats and risks to European security. This includes:
Not all of these are necessarily linked to the EU’s territory, but due to their interdependences and consequences they might still affect the security of Europe’s citizens. Special risks arise from the increasing complexity of modern societies and the growing interdependence of economic and technological systems.ESRIF’s task is to present by the end of 2009 a widely-shared perspective on European securityresearch needs and priorities.
