    The case for the importance of democracy for the foreign policy of the EU is presented. Then the current CFSP mechanisms for accountability are described. There follows a discussion of the two types of democratic deficits: the institutional and the socio-psychological (demos). Then, the main integration theories and their implications for the democratic deficit in the CFSP come under scrutiny. Finally, a number of suggestions for improving the democratic dimension of the CFSP are put forward within the preferred integration model, that of Confederal Consociation.
