Towards an EU global strategy – Consulting the experts
We present to you a special analysis of the EU Global Strategy by the IIR Director Petr Kratochvíl and other selected experts. Petr Kratochvíl was among the very few top EU experts selected to provide an opinion on the new EU Global Strategy, and his commentary was published on the website of the European Commission devoted to this topic. Now the resulting contributions of all the experts are collectively reproduced in one volume and offer a rich selection of independent views intended to nurture the drafting of the strategy.
The European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) – in close cooperation with the Strategic Planning Division of the European External Action Service (EEAS) – has carried out a wide-ranging outreach and consultation process involving the broader expert community represented by think tankers and academics from across Europe (and beyond). As part of this process, the EUISS asked 50 well-known analysts and commentators – roughly half from inside and half from outside the Union – to give their opinion in less than 1,000 words on the priorities that the forthcoming EU Global Strategy should address and how. The resulting contributions are collectively reproduced in one volume and offer a rich selection of independent views intended to nurture the drafting of the strategy and we are proud that our director, Petr Kratochvíl, is one of the experts contributing to this volume.
