06-10-2006

The different sources for the financing of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (EU budget Commission and Council sections; Members States and other) are analysed and assessed against the background and the objectives of the CFSP. The developments of these components in recent years are shown. Evaluation is approached at different levels. Better ex-ante and ex-post reporting on CFSP measures to the European Parliament is strongly recommended.
