Implementation of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP)

At a Glance 10-02-2022

The EU's common foreign and security policy (CFSP) is the basis for the Union's external action, including the promotion of EU values internationally. The 2021 annual report of the Committee for Foreign Affairs on the implementation of the CFSP names five areas that play a central role in the EU's external action: strengthening multilateral partnerships; improving decision-making and making use of the EU's soft and hard powers alike; interlinking the EU's external and internal actions; developing regional strategies; and fostering the parliamentary dimension of CFSP. Parliament will vote on the report during its February 2022 plenary session.
