Final Report on Bilateral Cooperation
To evaluate the successes and failures of the EU as a global actor in security and peace requires an analysis of EU action at multiple levels of security governance. As a result EU-GRASP set out to “map” a wide range of EU relations on six security issues at multiple levels of security governance; terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, regional conflict, migration, human rights, and energy security in the context of climate change. Once this was undertaken, EU-GRASP partners consulted on conducting case-study research that focused on deepening our understanding of specific cases; that is to say, that a multiple case study approach was adopted which focused on exemplifying cases identified through mapping and consultation exercises. This was done in such a manner as to allow for the coordinated selection of case studies, intended to cover transversal issues, whilst also allowing a significant degree of synchronisation between case-studies.
