Suddenly war seems to be all around us, in Ukraine, the Caucasus and the Middle East, and the threat of conflict looms in many other areas, not least in Asia. The EU claims to have developed into a “geopolitical union” that has a strategy to address these conflicts. Yet many observers see every successive crisis as a turning point and the start of a new world order. That is not very strategic, in fact. The EU’s leverage appears too limited, indeed. But real strategic thinking cannot mean to throw one’s strategy overboard whenever a new event occurs. A sober look at the EU’s interests shows what is really at stake, but also what not, and what the EU can do to preserve its interests.
