Europe's Economic Security Project

Pressures of global geoeconomics are mounting and the European Union increasingly finds itself under the impact of systemic shocks. In this context, economic security is of strategic importance. This EPC’s project aims to contribute towards anchoring the future EU agenda on the notion of resilience and a renewed industrial strategy. In doing so, it examines progress in the implementation of the doctrine of de-risking, oriented at reducing the EU’s exposure to excessive economic dependencies. It also proposes ways of supporting value creation in the key sectors of the global economy to make sure Europe strengthens its position in the intensifying global competition.

The project focuses on:
  • Analysis of the constituent aspects of economic security in the competitive and shock-prone global environment
  • Formulating a menu of policy options, including at the sectorial and institutional level
  • Blueprint for global economic security cooperation between like-minded countries

The project has its own dedicated website.  Visit it at

The Europe's Economic Security project is led by Paweł Świeboda, Senior Visiting Fellow. For further information on our work and opportunities to support it, please email
