    Abstract

    Assuming that the European Community has become a world actor in the field of external economic relations, is the European Union now to be considered, by way of the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the European Security and Defence Policy, as an actor in the field of (classical) foreign policy? The answer is that we are facing an evolving process with important and perhaps enduring specificities of the two facets of EU relations with the outside world. The following questions are addressed: What are the main features and the practical developments in the two fields? What is important, in this perspective, for the external action of the Union in the Constitutional Treaty of 2004? Should we define the EU as a civilian power? What is "European" in the European Security Strategy of December 2003?
