Civil Protection in Europe and the Lisbon ‘solidarity clause’: A genuine legal concept or a paper exercise
School of Law, University of Surrey.
2011 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This working paper will attempt to provide an insight into the ori-gins and added value of the principle of solidarity in the context of the EU’s security strategy. To that effect, it will discuss the ways in which the Article 222 TFEU ‘solidarity clause’ has broadened the notion of ‘threat’ in Europe. It will further attempt to assess the significance of the ‘solidarity clause’ vis-à-vis the level of commit-ment required by Member States for its coherent implementation. It will then compare the Lisbon ‘solidarity clause’ with the so-called ’mutual defence clause’ of Article 42 (7) TEU and finally point into certain 'grey areas' that may have a diminution effect upon the po-litical message concerning the EU as a community based on soli-darity.
