This article focuses on the transformation of current global problems into mathematical data and the drawing of conclusions from the results. After a theoretical introduction that clarifies the philosophy of the above approach and provides an innovative description of the mathematical model concept, a method for describing and analyzing crises is presented, with the goal of measuring its influence on the observable system, whether at the EU, global, or other levels. Converting social issues into quantitative data provides a systematic assessment of the severity of crises and allows for comparisons across different crises and systems. The main conclusion of the article is that a mathematical model, such as the one introduced here, could, to some extent, describe, as a first approach, global problems and their interrelationship, and thus be useful to policy makers.
