Mixed Agreements Revisited

The EU and its Member States in the World

Edited by: Panos Koutrakos, Christophe Hillion

Mixed agreements are one of the most important and complex areas of EU external relations law. They are concluded by the Member States and the EC (and/or the EU) with third countries and international organizations. Their negotiation, conclusion, and implementation raise important legal and practical questions - about competence, authority, jurisdiction, responsibility - and often puzzle not only experts in countries and organizations with which the EU works, but also European experts and students. This book, based on papers presented at a conference organized by the Universities of Leiden and Bristol in May 2008, will become the main point of reference in this area. It provides a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the legal and practical problems raised by mixed agreements. In doing so, it brings together leading international scholars in the area of EU external relations, including two sitting judges at the European Court of Justice and a judge at the EFTA Court, along with legal advisors from EU institutions, Member States, and third countries.
