Summary/Abstract: The High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy is expected to provide a European Global Strategy in July 2016. The present paper is an analysis on the context in which EU Global Strategy is to be presented and implemented, arguing that the very effort of designing such a vision constitutes a challenge in itself. This paper is meant to be neither an argumentation for or against the necessity of such a project, nor a set of recommendations in this respect. The main purpose of this demarche is to emphasize the multiple challenges attached to the project of a new EU security strategy. In order to meet this objective, the paper comprises an introduction containing a brief narrative of the evolution of the project of a new European security strategy, followed firstly by a chapter setting some theoretical landmarks in the area of strategy and, then, by the two central parts consecrated to the external and, respectively, to the internal challenges. The conclusions reveal there is a considerable risk for the European strategy to have a lower impact on foreign and security policy than expected
