Summary/Abstract: The fact that the European Union as a specific internation-al organization of 27 member states which has over 2 million members of the armed forces on its disposal and whose over-all defence expenditures are almost one quarter of global costs is developing common security and defence policy is certainly the fact that deserves researchers’ attention. But at the same time equally important seems to be the issue how the control over this policy is being executed. In this paper we will try to see in what way the parliament oversight over European Security and Defence Policy is being executed, with a focus primarlly on mechanisms and means on disposal of the European Parliament.
