Communication published by the European Commission on 24 July 2020, setting out a strategy for the European Union's Security Union for the period 2020-2025.
The political guidelines set out by the President of the European Commission called for improved cooperation to protect all those living in Europe.

This strategy lays out 4 strategic priorities for action at EU level:
The strategy builds upon progress achieved under the Commission's European Agenda on Security 2015-2020 and focuses on priorities endorsed by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union.
