The article focuses on the origin and development of mixed agreements in the EU law. This topic is intrinsically related to the competences of EU and Member States. Therefore, the piece elaborates on the external competence of the EU and Member States, with a special emphasis on implied competence of the Union and its ramifications in the discussed plane. Further, the article discourses on the legal framework of mixed agreements in the primary EU law and its evolution. This section also underscores the role of the CJEU, particularly in light of the specific rules retained in the CFSP.
