Academic forum on EU Global Strategy edited by Hylke Dijkstra

The EU High Representative Federica Mogherini presented her EU Global Strategy (EUGS) in June 2016. At a time of security crises, it is difficult to think of something more important for Europe than collective action aiming at weathering the storm. For the most recent issue of the academic journal ‘Contemporary Security Policy’, Hylke Dijkstra edited an academic forum on the EU Global Strategy, consisting of seven articles by senior scholars.

The EUGS, in this respect, seeks to define common ends and identify means. So what do we make of the EUGS? What does the EUGS tell us about the current role of the EU in global affairs? And how will the withdrawal of the UK from the EU affect foreign and security policy?

For ‘Contemporary Security Policy’, Hylke Dijkstra edited an academic forum on the EU Global Strategy with seven articles by Maria Mälksoo, Jolyon Howorth, Mai’a K. Davis Cross, Wolfgang Wagner and Rosanne Anholt, Sven Biscop, Michael E. Smith, and Nathalie Tocci. These articles compare the EUGS with the previous European Security Strategy of 2003, explain how the EUGS fits into a changing world order, unpack the concept of ‘resilience’ which plays a central role in the EUGS, and discuss the prospects of implementation in the areas of diplomacy, defence, and the European neighbourhood. The final article by Nathalie Tocci discusses the making of the EUGS. She drafted the EUGS, on behalf of Mogherini, and she provides valuable insights from behind the scenes.

As a courtesy of the publisher, the full forum is temporarily made available via Free Access (i.e. no paywall). This allows everyone without a subscription to Contemporary Security Policy to also access the articles.
