ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the constitutional role of customary international law within the European Union (EU) legal order by focusing on the Court of Justice of the European Union's (CJEU) relevant jurisprudence. The author argues that the obligation derived from EU law to respect customary international law in the exercise of its powers is not vigorous enough to limit EU competence in the sphere of external action. He justifies this argument by discussing cases.
