This chapter examines the role of EU law in promoting and guaranteeing coherence in external action. The first part attempts to shed light on the notion of coherence in the context of EU primary law, notably by relating it to the Treaty on European Union concept of ‘consistency’. The second part argues that achieving coherence in the EU external action depends on the degree of deference, by EU institutions and Member States, to other organizing principles of the EU system of external relations, and notably to the rules governing the distribution of powers within that system, as well as the multi-dimensional duties of cooperation compelling its actors.

Keywords:   EU law, consistency, primary law, foreign relations, foreign policy, cooperation
