The African Union and its Behaviour During the Ebola Outbreak 2014-2016: Steps Towards Understanding Actorness and Effectiveness

Abstract [en]

The following thesis seeks to test Brattberg and Rhinard’s hypothesized correlation between actorness and behaviour (assumed to facilitate effectiveness) during disasters. Its goal is to test it on the African Union during the Ebola outbreak and thereby investigate if there is a positive relation between degrees of actorness and behaviour. The test shows, broadly speaking, a positive result, but it does suggest that certain expectancies in behaviour need to be conceived in broader terms.
