Security strategies are important sites for narrating the EU into existence as a security\ud actor. The unveiling of a new global strategy on foreign and security policy for the EU\ud immediately post-Brexit could be conceived as a pledge to remain together as a Union\ud for the purposes of contributing to global security in a particular way. This paper offers\ud a brief stock-taking of the EU's way of writing security from the European Security\ud Strategy (2003) to the EU Global Strategy (2016). A concise exegesis of these\ud documents exposes an interesting dynamic: as exercises in ordering the world, both\ud strategic guidelines have turned out to be major exercises in ordering the self. The\ud comparative snapshot shows the EU as increasingly anxious to prove its relevance for\ud its own citizens, yet notably less confident about its actual convincingness as an\ud ontological security framework for the EU's constituent members over time.
