Extraterritorial Collective Security: The European Union and Operation ARTEMIS

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter examines the 2003 armed intervention by the European Union, in the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It discusses the various legal questions that arise from the EU's extension of its collective security regime beyond Europe, especially in respect of a conflict that did not, at least directly, concern any of its Member States. Considering that Operation ARTEMIS forms part of a much broader commitment by the EU to assist African states and organisations to deal with the various problems besieging their continent, this chapter ponders the wider implications of the cooperation between the European Union and African Union and attempts to understand how this might develop in the future.
