This chapter sheds some light on a number of dimensions of the requirement of consistency and coherence which characterize the position of the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) within the EU external relations system. First, it examines the normative dimension of consistency by outlining the effects that the substantive interaction between security policy and external relations law may have on the legal autonomy of the respective sets of rules. It then highlights the political dimension of the need for coherence by focusing on the interactions between development cooperation and conflict prevention. Finally, it identifies certain areas where EU institutions and the Member States have developed practical mechanisms aiming at managing the conduct of ESDP and its interactions with EU external relations in an efficient manner.

Keywords:   European Security and Defence Policy, legal autonomy, EU external relations, security policy, coherence
