Challenges and the Road Ahead for Civil Protection Cooperation in the EU
In the final chapter, the authors summarize and make sense of the book's overall findings and discuss the factors which condition EU cooperation in the area of civil protection and crisis management. They also discuss the implications of the study's findings for evaluating the recent developments in civil protection cooperation and why what they have found should inform what the EU and its member states should concentrate on when planning for the future. Here the authors focus on the European Commission’s proposed rescEU plans for building an even stronger collective European response to disasters. The authors use the final conclusions to discuss how much cooperation within the Union can be sensibly expected in this area and which cleavages and barriers must be overcome.
