Accountability in EU Security and Defence

This chapter is dedicated to administrative accountability regarding the civilian dimension of EU security and defence. It first decorticates the administrative environment of civilian CSDP. The scrutiny covers institutional, legal, and procedural components (reporting lines and attribution schemes, disciplinary arrangements, etc). The chapter then outlines the small role national authorities play in administrative accountability. Thirdly, the assessment concentrates on the role of the European Ombudsman as a quasi-judicial accountability forum for both individual complaints and overall administrative questions. The evaluation of the Ombudsman’s role is followed by a study of the dual function of the European Court of Auditors, which simultaneously fulfils an auditing and a consultative function. Finally, the chapter discusses the complementarity of the Ombudsman and the European Court of Auditors.
