Renard, Thomas. and Biscop, Sven. (2010) A need for strategy in a multipolar world: Recommendations to the EU after Lisbon. Egmont Security Policy Brief No. 5, January 2010. [Policy Paper]
The Lisbon Treaty now having entered into force, it is time for the EU to get back to work and more specifically to focus on its foreign policy. In a world that is increasingly complex and multipolar, the EU must act strategically. To avoid becoming an irrelevant international actor, Brussels needs to (1) develop a grand strategy to define the true purpose of its foreign policy; (2) forge solid strategic partnerships with key global players; and (3) contribute to the building of a new effective multilateral system which takes into account the new global structure of power.
