The paper discusses how the European Union is one of the most dominant actors on the contemporary global stage whose role is only expected to grow. The paper explains how the European Union is not like a traditional power; it lacks its own armies, does not pursue a coordinated foreign policy and acts primarily in terms of its economic influence. The paper then shows how it uses this economic influence in a variety of ways that contribute strongly to a very real and powerful role in global affairs. The paper points out, however, that the overarching economic emphasis of the European project can have its negative side in terms of too much control, and a bland homogenization that threatens Europe's diverse cultures and those of other nations as well.
