The Romanian Centre for European Policies would like to signal the release of a new study, The New EU Foreign Policy Architecture: Reviewing the first two years of the EEAS, by the Brussels-based Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS). Paul Ivan, a CRPE affiliated expert, is one of the authors of this study.
Based on extensive interviews with officials of the EEAS, the member states’ Permanent Representations to the EU, the Commission’s staff and Members of the European Parliament involved in the establishment and workings of the EEAS, this CEPS study examines two interrelated topics: 1) the way in which the EEAS has functioned in the EU institutional architecture in its first two years of existence and 2) the improvements that could be made through the 2013 review and the 2014 revision of its mandate. The study contributes to the current debate through an in-depth analysis of the EEAS’ relations with the EU member states, the European Commission, the European Parliament and its delegations.
The study is available here.
