This study attempts to combine C&RIR and global governance theory with the prospect of achieving a new theoretical as well as empirical description of global governance, respectively ‘hegemonic governance’, which was created, for example, in the GWOT under the last US administration.

In this document the assumption is expressed that in a number of policy fields the EU is an actor in its own right.
