The idea of strategic autonomy goes straight to the heart of European prosperity. If the union wants to stay relevant as a geopolitical actor in  the future, it needs to think long and hard about what strategies can help it punch above its weight. If not done correctly, the quest for strategic autonomy could end up undermining Europe’s standing in the world, argues Fredrik Erixon in the brief “Achtung Europa! How the Quest for Strategic Autonomy Could Undermine Europe’s Power and Prosperity”.
