The EU can play the leading actor on the geopolitical scene, as long as it focuses its strategy on the defense of its values and the promotion of them internationally.
The main objective of this paper is to demonstrate how the European Union shows more strength on the geopolitical panorama when it works in favor of its values and the defense of them. This paper also analyses the role that new technologies have played on the geopolitical decisions of the EU and how some topics that have not been relevant for geopolitics can become new lines for the Union's strategy.
