Ulkoasiainvaliokunnan toimivaltaan kuuluvat yhteinen ulko- ja turvallisuuspolitiikka (YUTP) sekä Euroopan turvallisuus- ja puolustuspolitiikka (ETPP). Lisäksi valiokunnassa seurataan tarkasti kolmansien maiden ihmisoikeuskysymyksiä. Sen tehtävänä on lujittaa Euroopan unionin ja kolmansien maiden poliittisten suhteiden parlamentaarista ulottuvuutta sekä hyväksyä avustusohjelmia ja kansainvälisiä sopimuksia.

Valiokuntaa avustaa kaksi alivaliokuntaa, jotka ovat ihmisoikeuksien alivaliokunta sekä turvallisuus- ja puolustuspolitiikan alivaliokunta.
