Just a few days after the Brexit referendum, the EU heads of state and government welcomed the 'Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy'.

The document, which CFSP High Representative Federica Mogherini spent a year preparing, reads as yet another declaration of intent, calling for greater unity in the CFSP. It argues for what is at first glance an astonishingly defensive foreign policy orientation revolving around the concept of resilience. The upshot is a boost to transatlantic security relations, especially between the EU and NATO.
