This chapter analyses the fight against terrorism in the framework of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and the possible role of the European Union as a regional organisation under international law. It investigates the following issues: first, the changes terrorism has made to the nature of European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) against the background of the negotiations on the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe; second, the consistency of the EU military contribution to the fight against terrorism with general international law and the collective security system.

Keywords: terrorism; Common Foreign and Security Policy; European Union; European Security and Defence Policy; international law; collective security system
