Lisbon Treaty 2009 (High Representative of the Union for FASP) Common Foreign and Security Policy controls the efforts of EU member states to act in a unified way on foreign policy and security affairs. Decision-making process Power Citizens

Exclusive power Opinions on the CFSP The CFSP is an effective way of enhancing security around the EU by emphasising shared goals and values.
Co-operating on foreign policy gives countries a louder voice on the world stage.
Pooling diplomatic and defence resources allows members to save money because they can share know-how and hardware.

The EU should not 'go it alone', but it should instead maintain traditional links with the USA through NATO and the UN.
Setting foreign policy is one of the most important jobs of a national government. Un-elected European officials should not be given this power.
Member states find it very difficult to agree on foreign and security policy, so the CFSP can only ever have limited effectiveness.
CFSP allows some countries to do less about their security because they can ride on the back of more powerful countries, like the UK or France. thank you for your attention Jim van Houwelingen and Vera Bonset CFSP Topical issue Catherine Ashter was asked to draw up proposals to further EU defence policy, with discussion regarding the on-going situation in Syria.
