New Developments of EU external policy


Following the release of the ‘Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy‘, this study provides an assessment of this policy as it has evolved since Javier Solana’s ‘A secure Europe in a better world’ of 2003, of the different challenges confronting that policy fourteen years later, and of the requirements for its future shape seen to flow from assessment and challenges. By doing this, this study aims to provide an empirically grounded analysis of the EU’s Common Security and Defense policy and its role as one of the security-defense policy options of the EU Member States, contributing to a more realistic reading of the EU’s new ‘normative’ initiatives to come.
