Seminar: EU Crisis Management

In recent decades Europe has been rocked by successive crises often managed, to a large extent, at EU level. Many were external in origin, among them the financial crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is yet another example. At a seminar on 29 April 2022 , four European researchers shared their analyses of how the EU has handled the crises of the 21st century and made assessments of how the EU’s capacity for crisis management can be improved. Their analyses are collected in an anthology that was presented at the seminar.

In recent decades Europe has been rocked by successive crises often managed, to a large extent, at EU level. Many were external in origin, among them the financial crisis, the mass influx of refugees in 2015, and most recently the COVID-19 pandemic, which put EU cooperation to the test as Member States initially chose to protect public health in conflicting ways, and at the expense of the ‘four freedoms’. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is yet another example. The war is already having concrete effects on the lives of EU citizens and Europe’s response is to a large extent being coordinated by the EU.

At a seminar on 29 April at SIEPS in Stockholm, four European researchers shared their analyses of how the EU has handled the crises of the 21st century. They provided perspectives on the strengths and weaknesses of EU crisis management and made assessments of how the EU’s capacity for crisis management can be improved. Their analyses are collected in an anthology that was presented at the seminar.

A recording of the seminar will be availabe on this page within shortly.
