Dos factores estructurales han impactado de manera decisiva sobre el marco general de las relaciones transatlánticas durante la última década: la Gran Recesión de 2008 y el ascenso de Asia como centro de los asuntos mundiales, afectando severamente la postura estratégica en ambos lados del Atlántico. A pesar de converger sobre la mayoría de las cuestiones estratégicas, la posición y las prioridades en ambos lados del Atlántico han ido modificándose sobre todo en términos de intereses y capacidades. El modelo del dilema de seguridad en las alianzas nos muestra que la política transatlántica sigue funcionando, pero las diferencias entre EE.UU. y los aliados europeos es principalmente debido al desacuerdo en cómo tratar con el juego del adversario en el dilema de seguridad, aunque podría ser más estructural y sería una vuelta a las relaciones que existían en el periodo entre guerras.

The network created by undergoverned spaces, corruption, organized crime and terrorism is the threat that the EU and its member states faced in the Great Maghreb, which is recreating a new Southern Flank, different from that which existed during the Cold War. The increase in extremist activity in the Sahel-Sahara since 2005 has gone hand in hand with the growth of transnational organized crime networks through the area. Although there is much debate about their relationship, intensity and impact, it is an undeniable dynamics in the area. The EU does not really have a unified policy for the Maghreb-Sahel, and in terms of organized crime and terrorism, the Sahel cannot be separated from the Maghreb. There is a limited and partial understanding of the problem both in terms of threats and viable solutions, a problem which has expanded by the action of Boko Haram, overwhelming the vision, planning and strategy of the EU. Despite the Sahel Regional Action Plan 2015-2020, the measures taken are limited, very recent and probably insufficient from the point of view of the dynamics and synergies between terrorism-organized crime in a context of corruption. The EU continues to maintain a security-development approach essentially based on a concept of human security, although this approach is highly questionable to face such threats.

This article tries to present an appropriate redefinition of EU policy towards North Africa and the Sahel, both geographically and in strategic terms, as set forth in the new European Strategy (June 2016). The article compares the principles and the evolution of the European Security Strategy (2003) and the European Neighbourhood Policy with the new European Global Strategy of June 2016. The new Strategy is considered as a guide for the implementation of the EU foreign and security policy, inter alia, in its periphery. Unfortunately, the conception of the region is rooted in the past.
