Lothar Rühl: European Foreign and Security Policy since the Lisbon Treaty – From Common to single?

ZEI Discussion Paper C 226/2014

Since the Lisbon Treaty, all organizational conditions have been created for the systematic use of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP).

Military and civil structures, especially the operational headquarters and associated common structures like transport command, have been established. 

Until now there has been limited activity in crisis resolution, outside of Bosnia and Macedonia, and therefore little has been done in replacement of NATO. It is therefore difficult to assess the development of the common policy on conflict prevention and crisis management and it has been shown that in all cases NATO should come into play as planned from the outset.
