Abstract [en]

Effective interorganizational collaboration is a pivotal ingredient of any community or nation’scapacity to prepare for and bounce back from disruptive crisis events. The booming research fieldof collaborative public management (CPM) has been yielding important insights into such collaborationthat as yet await transfer to the study of crisis management (CM). Also, we argue thatthe general CPM literature has not sufficiently addressed the distinctive collaboration challengesinvolved in coping with crises. This article bridges this twofold gap. Based on a systematic reviewof prior research in collaborative CM, this study identifies dominant areas of theoretical emphasis,methodological practices, and patterns of empirical enquiry. The article highlights areas whereCPM research has potential to further inform the understanding of collaborative CM, including performance,success factors, managerial skills, and learning. The article then identifies five propertiesassociated with CM—uncertainty, leadership, magnitude, costs, and urgency—which deservefurther analysis to advance the understanding of the application of CPM principles and strategies.We conclude with outlining a research agenda and offering a set of testable propositions aimed atinvestigating the likelihood of effective collaboration in different types of crises and as expected indifferent CM paradigms.

Abstract [en]

Past research has posited that effective leadership is an essential ingredient in reaching international agreements and overcoming the collective action problems associated with responding to climate change. Despite its fundamental importance for leadership relationships, the demand side of the leadership equation has been comparatively neglected in the literature. In this study, we answer several related questions that are vital for understanding the leadership dynamics that impact the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiations. Are there any leaders in the field of climate change and, if so, who are they? How do followers select climate leaders? What factors are important to them? Using unique survey data collected at four consecutive United Nations (UN) climate summits, Conference of Parties (COP) 14–17, this article investigates which actors are actually recognized as playing a leadership role in the UNFCCC negotiations and probes how followers select leadership candidates in this issue area. The survey findings reveal a fragmented leadership landscape, with no one clear-cut leader, and spotlight that if an actor seeks to be recognized as a leader, it is crucial to be perceived as being devoted to promoting the common good.

Abstract [en]

In a world characterized by complex interdependence, crises that originate in one country have the potential to rapidly diffuse across borders and have profound regional and even global impacts. The eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull in April 2010 demonstrates how rapidly a natural disaster can morph from a local crisis with local effects to a cascading crisis with international effects across multiple sectors. After spreading to Europe the ash cloud severely disrupted air travel and paralyzed the European aviation transport system. This cascading crisis caught authorities by surprise and revealed the need to improve crisis preparedness to deal with the threat of volcanic ash in particular and aviation in general at the international, EU, and national levels. In the aftermath of the event, reforms and policy changes ensued. Just over a year later, the Icelandic volcano Grímsvötn erupted, providing an opportunity to observe the revised system respond to a similar event. The origins, response, reforms, lessons learned, and questions of resilience connected to these complex negative events are the subject of this paper. The article concludes by addressing the question of whether and to what extent the vulnerabilities and problems exposed by the 2010 volcanic ash cloud event are amenable to reform.
