The famous phrase of Goethe - "All theory, dear friend, is grey, but the golden tree of life springs ever green" - comes to mind when studying the EU's Global Strategy (EUGS, June 2016) as well as all the related work the EU has recently presented in this context, be it the Review of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP, November 2015), the Joint Report on the Implementation of the European Neighbourhood Policy Review (17 May 2017) or the Joint Communication on "A Strategic Approach to Resilience in the EU's External Action" (7 June 2017), to name just a few.
