Abstract

The EU’s comprehensive approach to crises constitutes a crucial tool in responding to challenges that affect the EU and its global role as defined by the European Global Strategy. This chapter provides a conclusive approach to the operational framework of the DG ECHO, its multiple synergies and the ability of the European Union to operate in a cohesive, efficient way. This is of paramount importance in an era of emerging regional and global challenges. These illustrate the need of the EU to adapt to a new international reality. At the same time, it pinpoints the urgency to provide a flexible organizational framework under the leadership and institutional aegis of the EU Commission.
