Chapter 14: The nexus between CFSP/CSDP and the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice
The interactions between AFSJ and CFSP have become increasingly pronounced. They are also dynamic and subject to adjustment, and must be viewed in the context of the prevailing political climate in the EU. The intensity of these interactions has already had an impact on the character of the CFSP: the latter has moved closer to the soft end of the security spectrum and is being instrumentalized in order to enable the EU to achieve objectives of other policies. Whilst it prevents the scope of CFSP from being impinged upon by other policies, the limited, so far, case law of the Court of Justice on the relationship between CFSP and AFSJ does not provide a clear yardstick that would enable the institutions to address legal basis questions with confidence.
