The EU Common Commercial Policy (CCP) is since the beginning of the process of European integration one of the most dynamic political fields. The EU has achieved a leading role among the economic superpowers and is regarded in most aspects of economic law as a single economic area where the EU speaks also on behalf of its Member States. This volume analyses the implications of the Treaty of Lisbon for the Common Commercial Policy of the EU. The Lisbon Treaty has declared all matters concerning external commercial policy as an exclusive competence of the European Union. Which implications does this have for the Member States of the EU? In regard to institutional modifications, the Lisbon Treaty has significantly strengthened the role of the European Parliament and has substantially reformed the role of the 'High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy' (HR). Further topics of this volume are the new normative framework of the CCP, inter alia the linkage of the CCP to the general objectives for the EU's external action and its dependence on secondary legislation, and investment policy now being part of the CCP.
