Summary/Abstract: The aim of the reflections in this article is to analyze the impact of selected institutional solutions adopted by the Treaty of Lisbon on the EU diplomacy in contemporary international relations. The article does not refer to all regulations that concern broadly defined EU External Policy, but those which, by the nature of their connections, content of competence and meaning, became the object of special interest of the treaty architects and whose implementation was to counteract deficits in continuity, coherence and leadership in EU External Policy in pre‑Lisbon period. This assumption determined the structure of the article in which, after a brief reflection on the EU nature in context of the nature of contemporary international relations, the deficits in the institutional order of the EU External Policy before the Lisbon Treaty were analyzed and then they were confronted with treaty reforms.
