ESPAS – at the heart of EU foresight
The European Strategy and Policy Analysis System (ESPAS) provides a framework for cooperation and consultation at administrative level between the European Parliament, the European Commission, the Council of the European Union, and the European External Action Service, with the European Investment Bank, the Committee of the Regions, the European Economic and Social Committee, the European Union Institute for Security Studies and the European Court of Auditors as observers, to work together on medium and long-term trends facing or relating to the European Union.
ESPAS has published a new report entitled The Global Future - an Update. The report analyses what has changed in the trends and challenges facing European decision-makers since the 2019 ESPAS Global Trends Report. It has been written for ESPAS by Florence Gaub, Deputy Director of the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS).
