In co-operation with Dunja Duić, PhD, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Law, J.J. Strossmeyer University of Osijek, Sandro Knezović, PhD, Research Adviser at the Institute for Development and International Relations published an original scientific article entitled „The EU’s Strategic Compass – Anything new for the EU’s CSDP?“ in a German academic journal The Zeitschrift für Europarechtliche Studien (ZEuS). The legal journal ZEuS is indexed in SCOPUS and is published by the Europa-Institut, Law department of Saarland University since 1998. The concept of ZEuS is a wide-ranging one: the journal addresses current aspects and fundamental problems connected with European Integration, European law and International law.
The published article takes a closer look at potentials and limits of the EU Strategic Compass in order to show throughout the glace of the document more precisely where the limits of European Union’s and Member States’ action are within the European security and defence realm, both legally and politically. Likewise, the article tries to detect if the Strategic Compass is an appropriate answer for transformation of European security after Russia’s military escalation at the EU’s eastern flank.
