    Strategy for Europe’s neighbourhood: keep resilient and carry on?

    The EU Global Strategy sets resilience as a priority for the EU’s relations with its neighbours. Sven Biscop outlines that while it does signal a pragmatic and justified move away from proactive democratisation and regime change, questions remain concerning the actual focus and process of resilience building – especially when there is no benign leadership to cooperate with.

    Furthermore, at a time when global powers such as Russia, China, and the United States are engaging in fierce geopolitical competition, many countries are prioritizing national survival and security guarantees. As such, sovereignty and equality could be more practical objectives for the EU's engagement with its neighbourhood.
