About Structural Principles in EU External Relations Law

The law and practice of EU external relations is governed not only by general objectives (Articles 3(5) and 21 TEU and Article 205 TFEU) and values (Article 2 TEU) but also by a set of principles found in the Treaties and developed by the Court of Justice, which structure the system, functioning and exercise of EU external competences. This book identifies a set of 'structural principles' as a legal norm-category governing EU external relations; it explores the scope, content and function of those principles that may be categorised as structural. With an ambitious scope, and a stellar line-up of experts in the field, the collection offers a truly innovative perspective on the role of law in EU external relations.

“[T]his book is essential reading for researchers specialized in EU external relations law, who wish to investigate crucial questions relating to the specific nature of the EU external system, as well as for legal scholars trying to unravel the complexity of the EU's constitutional order, to which the rules governing its external relations clearly contribute.” –  Paula García Andrade, Common Market Law Review
