Report on the Implementation of the European Security Strategy - Providing Security in a Changing World
Five years on from adoption of the European Security Strategy, the European Union carries greater responsibilities than at any time in its history. ? The EU remains an anchor of stability. ? Yet, twenty years after the Cold War, Europe faces increasingly complex threats and challenges.
The European Council adopted the European Security Strategy (ESS) in December 2003. For the first time, it established principles and set clear objectives for advancing the EU's security interests based on our core values. It is comprehensive in its approach and remains fully relevant.
This report does not replace the ESS, but reinforces it. It gives an opportunity to examine how we have fared in practice, and what can be done to improve implementation.
