Reportedly, Digital technologies have brought many opportunities into people’s lives worldwide. They have become the critical competitive parameters that can shift the balance of power.

The European Union Digital Diplomacy aims to secure the European union’s global role in the digital world and to protect its strategic interests. Also, it seeks to promote a dynamic human-centric regulatory framework for an inclusive digital transformation.

Digital Technologies play the most vital role in society. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of promoting safe and effective digital solutions for a more accessible, equal and inclusive world.

Day by day, the international and security context is becoming more vast and complex. The newly launched technologies are increasing geopolitical competition and a barometer of global influence.


Many foreign actors also use this to threaten the privacy, security, and integrity of the European Union and its members by manipulating the information environment and its interference in democratic countries.

The EU’s approach to the digital transition is firmly anchored in its commitment to multilateralism and the promotion of universal human rights & fundamental freedoms, the rule of law and democratic principles.
