The FTA and the Framework Agreement, together with several sectoral agreements, form what is known as the common institutional framework (CIF). This chapter explains how the unique form of the EU-Korea CIF is the outcome of a compromise, accommodating the diverging demands of Korea and the EU. The chapter then goes on to explore the relationship between the various institutions forming part of the CIF. In particular, it addresses the role of the Joint Committee in managing overall bilateral relations and it asks whether this body has the necessary powers to ensure the coherent development of legal relations between the EU and Korea. The analysis also addresses the possible suspension of agreements within the CIF for a violation of the essential elements clause found in the Framework Agreement.
