The Contribution of EU Practice to International Law

The Contribution of EU Practice to International Law

(p.37) 3 The Contribution of EU Practice to International Law
Developments in EU External Relations Law

Frank Hoffmeister

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a systematic overview of EU practice relevant to international law. Inspired from comparable articles on the contribution of UN practice to international law, this EU practice will be set in context within the broader framework of international law, whilst trying to assess its impact on the development of international law at large. The chapter begins by recalling the constitutional foundations in European law which entrusts the EU with powers to act under international law. It then focuses on questions of general international law such as sources, subjects, jurisdiction, responsibility, and enforcement. This is followed by analysis of the EU's contribution to certain specialized branches of international law.

Keywords:   European Union, external powers, internal coordination, external representation, jurisdiction, enforcement
