the authority of the Council. The Civilian Crisis Management Committee
will be inter-pillar in character and give expert advice and make recommendations
to the Council through COREPER and, for matters falling under the CFSP,
also through the Political and Security Committee. Decision-making and
implementation of non-military crisis management tools under the first
