Humanitarian aid policy in the EU´s external relations: The post-Lisbon framework (2016:3)

Since the Treaty of Lisbon, the EU has had an express competence in humanitarian aid. This development entails numerous legal and institutional challenges, which this timely report analyses, while identifying ways to address them. This study is the sixth report SIEPS publishes in the context of its research project The EU external action and the Treaty of Lisbon.

The publication is in English and is a part of the SIEPS research project The EU external action and the Treaty of Lisbon.
