Abstract

This paper discusses the contribution of Articles 43 TEU and 215 TFEU to the European Union’s fight against terrorism. Three propositions are put forward about these two provisions: First, they formally confer new CFSP competences on the EU to combat terrorism. Secondly, they contribute to the increasingly hybrid character of EU counterterrorism. Thirdly, they establish competences that are potentially more constraining on EU institutions and Member States and more constrained in their exercise than pre-Lisbon CFSP competences, given the increased integration of the old ‘second pillar’ with the EU constitutional order.
