The aim of this policy brief is to draw attention to some relevant features of the relations between the European Commission and the European External Action Service, based on  their respective roles and competences within the framework of the post-Lisbon foreign policy system. In particular, this inter-institutional relation is observed through the lens of the intergovernmental - supranational dichotomy, in order to combine observations on  the structural aspects of this interaction with the analysis of the politics determining the new top figures of the European institutions.
