    Abstract

    With the operational launch of the European External Action Service (EEAS), exactly one year after the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, a key piece of the new EU external action puzzle falls into place. From now on, the game is likely to change, internally and externally. Yet change will be gradual and its pace will depend on a number of political and institutional factors. This paper analyses the preparatory steps that - throughout 2010 - led to the eventual establishment of the new service; the positions and stakes of the main players; the uncertainties that still linger on its development; and the main functional challenges it is likely to be confronted with. The EEAS is seen as a crucial test for the EU's capacity to operate more effectively on the international scene as well as for a more pragmatic and 'hybrid' approach to its institutional and policy set-up.
