The European Union´s Common Foreign and Security Policy after the Treaty of Lisbon (2017:3)

Författare: Koutrakos Panos

The Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) is a relatively recent add-on to the external action toolkit of the European Union. Introduced as a distinct policy framework cohabitating with that of the classic Community external relations, its hallmark remains its predominant intergovernmental nature.

In this report, Professor Panos Koutrakos provides a perceptive and timely analysis of the particular impact that the Lisbon Treaty has had on the CFSP, within the broader constitutional and substantive legal context of the Union. This is the ninth report which SIEPS publishes in the context of the research project The EU external action and the Treaty of Lisbon.

The publication is in English with a summary in Swedish and is part of SIEPS´ research project The EU External Action and the Treaty of Lisbon.
