Constitutional Principles of EU External Relations

This chapter analyses the role of democratic accountability in the Union's foreign policy, focusing on democratic accountability within the CFSP. It should, however, be pointed out that the involvement of the European Parliament in Community decision-making is most far-reaching in the legislative sphere. The European Parliament is not much involved in the executive aspects of Community policies, and its exclusion from the executive aspects of the CFSP, therefore, does not represent as stark a contrast as it might appear. The possibilities for judicial control by the Court of Justice within the sphere of the CFSP are also considered.

Keywords:   EU, foreign relations, common foreign and security policy, judicial control, Court of Justice, The Treaty of Lisbon, European Parliament, rule of law
