Human aspects in the Common Security and Defence Policy of the European Union (DIEEEA40-2012)

The XXIst century strategic landscape shows the human factors and the global governance as the key elements that frame the geostrategic scenario. The Human Security, in the center of strategic thinking, imposes a multidisciplinary and comprehensive action capable of performing in this crowded and complex scenario in which human rights should be the strategic objective of the Western intervention.
The Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP') is presented as a powerful tool capable of integrating the full range of EU instruments in the crisis management, provided the political will is able to activate and operate in the field.
