Chapter 34: General principles in EU Common Foreign and Security Policy
Restricted access

The aim of this chapter is to analyse to what extent general principles of EU law are applicable to the Union's Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), to what extent CFSP is bound or affected by general principles of EU law and which principles, if any, have been developed or strengthened within the CFSP context. Its main claim is that the 'normalisation' of CFSP has been driven by the Court relying on general principles of EU law, mainly out of considerations of coherence, and to underline that CFSP is part and parcel of the EU legal order. The present chapter thus underlines the Union-wide application of EU principles.
