Abstract/Summary

The article is the first to explore the EU’s CFSP and Energy policy nexus. In doing so, it examines the externalisation and securitisation of the EU’s internal energy market. The main argument advanced is that EU energy security policy development has become an important variable in ensuring EU wider foreign policy objectives. However, rather than addressing the CFSP liaisons with EU energy policy solely from the perspective of foreign policy objectives, the chapter also explores the securitisation of energy policy from the perspective of the internal market. It therefore argues that there is a very strong link between securitisation and competitiveness. As such, it explores the EU’s capacity to externalise its internal market policies both inside and outside the contours of CFSP by providing an overview of the existing CFSP framework and insight on the extraterritorial application and force of EU competition law to achieve CFSP objectives.
