The EU Global Strategy sets resilience as a key priority for the EUís relations with its neighbours. This is taken to signal a pragmatic move away from proactive democratisation in an increasingly challenging political and security environment in the EUís neighbourhoods. Yet many questions remain open concerning the actual focus of resilience building, especially when there is no benign leadership to cooperate with. Some answers are expected shortly, as the High Representative and the Commission are about to publish a joint communication on resilience as a strategic priority for the external action of the EU. Wherein lies the added value of this concept and approach for the EU? What concrete proposals are expected? How does the focus on resilience differ in the eastern and southern neighbourhoods? And how does all this link to the EUís own resilience?
