Are EU institutions ready for transboundary crises?


Crisis management has become a central theme in debates about reinvigorating the European Union. However, what is the readiness of EU institutions to deal with crisis? What lessons can be learnt from experiences of crisis management inside the European Union and externally? What capacities should the European Union have and how can it prepare for effective crisis management?

This half-day conference focuses on the challenges of transboundary crises to the EU. Discussions will focus on both internal and external dimensions of EU crisis management, highlighting in particular the importance of organisational capacities among EU institutions, member states and non-state actors.
