Abstract [en]

This study has aimed to examine the European Union’s use of the Civil Protection Mechanism during the on-going refugee crisis. Using the Civil Protection Mechanism is one way the memberstates can collaborate and fuse their crisis management efforts. Previous research by Boin, Ekengren and Rhinard shows the Civil Protection Mechanism, which was created to help member states request and offer assistance to one another, has found another institutionalization cycle, through which it has become more used in crises outside of the union than inside the member states. The refugee crisis needs to be examined empirically to try the further validity of Boin et al’s research. This was done through a qualitative research method with some quantitative features, which was used to study documents, mostly by the European Commission. The analysis compares external and internal activation of the Civil Protection Mechanism and finds that it was indeed activated more than twice as many times outside of the union for the refugee crisis during the years 2011-2015. But it also concludes that the year of 2015 has exceptional data that breaks this trend, which might prove that the Civil Protection Mechanism is used by member states for crises within the Union and that this type of large, transboundary crisis is the problem the Mechanism was looking to solve.
