Accountability in EU Security and Defence

The Law and Practice of Peacebuilding

«The theoretical framework of the book is extremely thorough, with strong analytical components detailing both concepts and methods of accountability as derived from prior contributions. The initial assumptions of the research are entirely reasonable. The methodology of the substantive inquiry blends legal doctrinal scholarship with interviews with policymakers. This is a welcome addition to the previous literature on EU security and defence, which tended to focus on only one of these approaches ... Accountability in EU Security and Defence is an excellent product and an invaluable read for the specialist with an interest in the EU law or foreign affairs policy, and to those with an interest in the accountability of the EU more broadly.»

Om boka

Currently, some 2,500 civilian experts work across Europe, Africa, and Asia in ten ongoing civilian missions launched under the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). Mandates cover a broad range of multidimensional tasks, such as rule of law support, law enforcement capacity building, or security sector reform. Numerous (recent) incidents from the field underscore that there are serious institutional as well as procedural weaknesses and irregularities tied to
accountability in these EU peacebuilding missions.

This title offers a comprehensive legal analysis and empirical study of accountability concerning the Union's peacebuilding endeavours, also referred to as civilian crisis management. Along with examining the governance credentials of EU peacebuilding, the monograph thoroughly scrutinizes de jure and de facto accountability arrangements of political, legal, and administrative nature existing in the domestic sphere, at EU level, and across levels. With a view to providing for a nuanced picture,
the assessment further distinguishes between different accountability finalities and evaluates the appropriateness of existing accountability arrangements in civilian crisis management based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative criteria.
