The G-NEXT and G-SEXTANT projects jointly published a special issue of Window on Copernicus - Discover the Security dimension of Copernicus - in the summer of 2015. This publication focusses on Copernicus products and information in Support to the EU’s External Actions.

Copernicus Support to EU External Action

Window on GMES (now renamed Window on Copernicus) is a professional journal like magazine designed to raise awareness of, and support for the Copernicus (previously known as GMES) Programme amongst policymakers and influential stakeholders. It has been published five times under the aegis of different Copernicus projects (G-MOSAIC, BOSS4GMES, GRAAL) with each issue focusing on a specific theme. The G-MOSAIC project published the latest special issue with a focus on the Security dimension of Copernicus.

As a global actor, Europe has a responsibility to promote stable conditions for human and economic development, human rights, democracy and fundamental freedoms. In this context, a key objective of the EU is to assist third countries in crisis situations or emerging crisis, and to prevent global and transregional threats leading to destabilisation, such as the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
