University of Defence, Military Academy, Belgrade
Keywords: EU; global strategy; foreign and security policy; vision; engagement; global management
The European Union (EU) is a unique peace project, created as a result of the economic and political integration of the European countries. It acts as a factor of the united geopolitical interests of its members, which have transferred a part of their national sovereignty to it for the sake of the common good and unique goals. As a result of the mentioned integration, the seventy-year-old peace established after the Second World War stands out, and continues to exist nowadays. The process of further enlargement of the EU is vital for its further development and survival, while obeying all defined standards and procedures that countries have to fulfill in order to become its full member. The enlargement of the Union is the direction of integration flow, whereas withdrawal of certain countries from it leads to disintegration and the emergence of awakened national feelings, reducing the possibility of achieving the unity on the basis of common goals, interests and values, while at the same time increasing instability and diminishing security capacities. The paper presents the elements of the European Union (EU) Global Strategy for Foreign and Security Policy. It addresses the issues that are important for enhancing the interests of the European citizens, the principles and priorities of the EU foreign activities are emphasized and, ultimately, the vision of the future EU action is highlighted. In particular, the paper is based on the text 'A Global Strategy for the European Union's Foreign and Security Policy - Shared Vision, Common Action: A Stronger Europe' and illustrates the EU response to increasingly complex security challenges. The following issues have been defined in this paper: (1) interests, values and principles of the EU foreign policy, (2) foreign policy priorities of the EU, and (3) from a global strategic vision to active engagement.
