A constitutional twilight zone: EU decentralized agencies’ external relations

    Onderzoeksoutput: Articlepeer review


    Even though EU agencies are poorly embedded in the EU’s constitutional
    framework their proliferation continues. If and when these agencies
    establish relations with international counterparts, they sometimes also
    conclude arrangements or agreement with those counterparts. This brings
    together two constitutionally problematic issues: the EU’s external action
    and the limits to the empowerment of EU agencies. This article aims to
    identify the constitutional and positive law frameworks applying to EU
    agencies’ external action, and looks at a number of examples. It is shown
    how the positive law framework does not properly reflect the requirements
    of EU constitutional law, resulting in legal ambiguity and accountability
    problems. Some EU agencies seem to go beyond what is allowed under the
    positive and constitutional law frameworks.
