Foreword



This special issue of the InternationalJournal of Marine and Coastal Law is ded-
icated to the external aspects of the European Union's (EU) common fisheries
policy (CFP). Today the EU is a global actor in the fisheries field. And, looking
back, it is clear that concern for external issues has been instrumental during
the inception and shaping  of the EU's fisheries policy generally. The external
aspect of fisheries policy is important for economic activity and jobs of cer-
tain regions and it is has shaped the EU's external relations with many parts
of the world, as seen by the comprehensive  network  of international agree-
ments. To be certain, the EU's external fisheries policy has sought primarily to
serve Europe's fishing interests, yet this has been increasingly accompanied by
broader concerns  to safeguard conservation of common  resources worldwide,
as for instance the EU legislation on illegal, unreported and unregulated (1uu)
fishing shows.1
   The external aspects of fisheries policy, traditionally treated as separate
from  the internal aspects of the policy occupied by allocation of resources
amongst  the EU Member   States, was made subject to common  principles thor-
ough the fisheries reform in 2013. The principles of external fisheries policy are
laid down  in Articles 28-33 of Regulation 1380/2013 (Basic Regulation)2 and
they have  been also developed  in the Commission   Communication (2o11)3
dedicated to external fisheries policy, and the corresponding Council conclu-
sions (2013).4 The external fisheries policy is primarily outwards orientated,
