Conclusions on the Current State of European Security Law

Show Summary Details


This final chapter draws conclusions on the scope and coherence of European Security Law. The European Union's approach to security is explicable by the fact that it has combined economic and foreign policy matters through the promotion of human rights and democracy as well as using sanctions to send messages to aggressors. A long-term approach to security requires attention not just to the absence of war but also to the positive aspects of developing peace and security through promoting human rights and democracy around the globe. This book has shown a number of ways that the organisation can overcome its current difficulties to develop a coherent security policy based on the rule of law.
