Abstract: The identification of security challenges primarily derives from a global analysis. This evaluation of the current geographic priorities of EU security policy takes into account the EU¿s programmatic orientations, as set out in particular in the European Security Strategy (ESS, the EU¿s main instrument and tool to address global security and current application to third countries). The reasons for EU concern or action differ from one country to another, and are influenced by the EU¿s capacity to effectively address security challenges in collaboration with international partners. The EU¿s capacity to act varies depending political will, existence of necessary instruments and on the country (or region) concerned. The approach to country prioritisation and ranking with respect to EU Security Policy is based on EU programmatic orientations and relevant EU actions. It has been developed on the basis of information generally drawn from publicly available EU sources. The resulting overall scores, rankings and classification according to the proposed model generally confirm geographical priorities of EU security/external policy as set out in the European Security Strategy or associated documents.
