A Glimpse into the Future of the European Union: A Leader or a Follower?

Ruxandra Popescu

This paper tries to analyze the current state of the European Union as a global actor and its perspectives of demonstrating leadership capabilities. In the current context of the new economic order, the struggle for power is growing far more rapid and at an increasingly intense pace. While economies like India, Brazil and China are steaming ahead, European Union is facing tough times and it's in need of a change. But will it be possible for the European Union to become a superpower and not just a follower? While analyzing the demographic, political, cultural, economical and military current state and perspectives, this paper aims to project a possible route of the European Union on the global map.
