Human security e la Strategia Globale dell’Unione Europea

Subito dopo le divisioni che hanno attraversato il vecchio continente sulla decisione degli Stati Uniti di lanciare l’operazione Iraqi Freedom, l’Unione Europea ha adottato un documento di Sicurezza Strategica che ha indicato la strada per la politica estera comune dell’Unione. L’Alto Rappresentante Federica Mogherini ha deciso di avviare una discussione su questo documento che porti alla preparazione di una nuova Strategia Globale per l’Unione Europea.

La discussione, avviata nel 2015, ha coinvolto una serie di gruppi di lavoro su vari temi, ed io ho avuto il piacere di partecipare al tavolo di lavoro guidato da Mary Kaldor e Iavor Rangelov su human security e mi sono occupato, nello specifico, di suggerire come la politica delle sanzioni dell’Unione Europea potrebbe essere resa piu’ efficace attraverso un’applicazione dei principi di human security. In generale, la riflessione suggerisce di rafforzare le capacita’ operative delle istituzioni europee e di coinvolgere gli attori locali nel processo decisionale.

Il rapporto e’ una lettura molto interessante e consiglio di guardare anche i capitoli tematici. Qua in basso potete trovare tutti i documenti.

This report proposes that the European Union adopts a second generation human security approach to conflicts, as an alternative to Geo-Politics or the War on Terror. Second generation human security takes forward the principles of human security and adapts them to 21st century realities. The report argues that the EU is a new type of 21st century political institution in contrast to 20th century nation-states. 20th century nation states were based on a clear distinction between inside and outside. Typical outside instruments were state-to-state diplomacy or economic and military coercion. Typical inside instruments are the rule of law, politics, and policing. In today’s complex, contested and connected world, outside instruments do not work; they backfire and make things worse. Human security is about extending the inside beyond the EU. […]
