What is VISIONS? Visions and practices of geopolitics in the European Union and its neighborhood (VISIONS) is a research project which is designed to investigate the current rapidly changing geopolitical landscape of the EU and its near neighborhood and analyze its consequences. 


We are interested to know how geopolitics may contribute to the empowerment of determined social actors or, conversely, the disempowerment, marginalization or securitization of other social groups such as women, migrants or ethno-linguistic minorities.
