3. Call for Papers: Asser Institute Conference on General Principles in EU External Relations Law. General principles play an important role in EU external relations law shaping the legal framework for EU external action as well as strengthening the judicial accountability of the EU as a global actor. At the same time, many questions regarding their specific function, scope and method of identification in EU external relations law remain unclear. What is the function of general principles in EU external relations law? Could these principles be in tension with the objectives and values of the Union’s external action and how is this tension resolved in practice? What is the role of the CJEU in identifying and developing general principles in EU external relations law? What is the role of general principles of international law in EU external relations law?
