The global environment is changing rapidly. That is why the European Union's Heads of State and Government decided to assess the challenges and opportunities that come with these shifts. In June 2015 the European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, presented her strategic assessment of the global context to EU leaders. They asked her to prepare an EU Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy to guide the European Union's global actions in the future.

The Global Strategy, to be presented to EU leaders by June 2016, will be developed in close cooperation with Member States, as well as with EU Institutions and the broader foreign policy community. Over the coming months, the High Representative will lead a broad based reflection phase on the strategic outlook for the European Union's global action to ensure that a wide range of views are taken into account.

This website will present the key issues in the debate and outline the process of preparing the EU Global Strategy. It will update you on the broad outreach and consultation process, which takes place both online and offline. You will also find details on special events, comment & analysis as well as key policy documents in the respective sections of this site.
