Abstract
The long-standing commitment of the European Union to integrate and fine-tune its policies across the security-development nexus, aims to end the devastating vicious cycle of insecurity and poverty in fragile states. This research holds this pledge up to the mirror of the EU’s underlying constitutional framework. The latter submits development cooperation and the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) – which includes the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) – to essentially different legal regimes. This erects a legal divide that ruthlessly cuts across policy efforts, instruments and communities tackling challenges on the security-development interface. This book studies how the EU, in its endeavours to cohere development cooperation with CFSP/CSDP, copes with the constitutional delimitation between them, and whether the Lisbon Treaty’s strive for more external action coherence offers better prospects to succeed. This analysis is conducted along three main tracks: the policy track of formulating political approaches and designing legal instruments, the institutional track of cooperation and coordination across institutions and departments, and the judicial track of delineating competences by the EU Court of Justice.
