Summary/Abstract: This paper analyzes the essential elements of the normative and transformative power of the European Union and their fundamental specifics. The research of these power concepts is directly inspired by their significance and mutual interference and also by their applicability to the existing worldview of the European Union in the XXI century international relations. Likewise, these two concepts have different generic features but identical discourse, which is worth to be decomposed in order to discern their essence, their existence and legitimacy. The main research intention of this paper aims to define the epistemological structuralism of the previous mentioned concepts, and thus, through the prism of the international relations, security and defense consequences of the ЕU as such.
