- New policy suggestions added to this page!
- Consistency and coherence in key EU external policies need to be strengthened
- Regulatory coordination between the EU and US should occur policy area by policy area and avoid a process of deregulation in Europe
- A Eurozone seat should be added to the IMF
- An EU-wide White Book on Security and Defence should be drafted
- The role of MEPs in boosting the legitimacy of the CSDP should be explored
- The EU should conduct research on the outcomes of CSDP missions, and feed this back into the policy-making process
- The role of the European Defence Agency should be upgraded so that it can help enhance the EU’s military industry
- There needs to be a common EU position on the future of the CSDP/NATO relationship
- EU public diplomacy needs to be improved, by not ignoring diversity within the EU and by using social media much more effectively
- Rather than teach the world about the EU (the EU’s approach to public diplomacy thus far), the EU should instead engage in genuine two-way interaction by taking a dialogical approach and being aware of the positions and perspectives of its counterparts
