Chapter Summary

Decision making has always been a sensitive issue for Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). Since the Maastricht Treaty, the right of the CFSP has materialized in unknown acts of the classic Community law: joint actions, common positions, joint strategies, as well as measures in the context of the former Community pillar called atypical acts: declarations, conclusions, and orientations. The CFSP, which includes the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP), is characterized by a complex institutional apparatus and heavy and sophisticated decision-making procedures. People can assume all the issues settled by the Treaty of Lisbon. This actually puts an end to the pillar structure and tries to reunite the entire Union law around the former Community law. The original text of the chapter is in French.
