secure working environment. Here, three sub-areas will be examined, each with its own set of criticisms. The first is the inclusion of human rights in humanitarian programming and the role of policy positions such as humanitarian intervention. The second relates to policy coherence and the notion of policy coherence for development. The third is the concept of security, and human security in

’ (Council of the EU, 2000b ; also European Commission, 2006 ). The belief is that, by acting coherently, the EU becomes a more effective international actor. As far as policy coherence is concerned, if one considers that coherence implies synergies as a result of mutually reinforcing policies oriented towards a common goal, improvements in policy coherence should enhance CFSP effectiveness. Similarly, in

Carta (2009: 2) describe EU–Russia energy relations as an ‘emblematic case that puts into question the EU’s foreign policy coherence and normative distinctiveness’. Likewise, Claes (2009: 58) exemplifies the EU’s predicament when he stresses that the EU would be in ‘a stronger and better position if the member states subsume to a unified strategy.

Cudmore suggests that nothing has changed since 9/11. The only positive development for policy coherence he sees is the establishment of the Office of Emergency Planning (OEP), formed after 9/11 and, significantly
