The 1844 draft of Serbian foreign policy, written by Ilija Garašanin, still provokes controversial interpretations as to its ultimate political goal. Here is stressed the role of Načertanije in its historical context and analyzed through various foreign influences: Polish, French and British. Those influences, together with Serbian political and historical traditions, decisively shaped the final text of Načertanije. In appendix is the new translation of Načertanije by the author.
