FORNET Working Group on the Evolution and Accountability of CFSP Institutions

FORNET partner responsible: Institut Universitari d'Estudis Europeus (IUEE) at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona.

In this working group, institutional issues related to CFSP were highlighted and debated, such as how to organise CFSP in an enlarged EU, and the impact of the Treaty of Nice, Convention and the next IGC on CFSP institutions. Different models of future evolution linked to concepts of differentiation and flexibility will also play a major role. The future of CFSP cannot be separated from the issue of accountability requiring a focus particularly on the role of the European Parliament and the Commission, but also on democratic control of the CFSP given the fresh dynamics of security and defence issues.

The second meeting was held in Barcelona on the 4-5 March 2005. For details on the conference and to download a programme click here [PDF].
