Content Type

This short and user-friendly legal commentary on the 2010 Council Decision establishing the organisation and functioning of the EEAS is the first of its kind. It is intended to inform those involved in the review process and to serve as a reference document for practitioners and analysts dealing with the EEAS.

Rather than an elaborate doctrinal piece, this legal commentary is a textual and contextual analysis of each article that takes account of

i) other relevant legal provisions (primary, secondary, international);
ii) the process leading to the adoption of the 2010 Council Decision;
iii) the preamble of the Council Decision and
iv) insofar as it is possible at this stage, early implementation.

Wherever relevant, cross-references to other provisions of the Council Decision have been made so as to tie in the different commentaries and ensure overall consistency.
