The Juncker Report makes an error in assuming that the implementation of Community law is restricted to matters in the EU's 'internal' legal system. At a minimum, this fails to take into account the EU's obligations under Community law not to violate human rights in third countries. Why should the Agency not have a role in making sure that the EU complies with its obligations to ensure that its finance, trade or development policies, for example, do not violate human rights in third countries? More arguable, perhaps, is whether the Agency should have a role in ensuring that the EU correctly applies its numerous conditionality clauses, as here the case rests on administrative efficiency, rather than legal obligation.
