Crisis Management and Organizational Identity on Lesvos

Crisis Management and Organizational Identity on Lesvos

 

The stream of refugees arriving in Europe has made a tremendous local, national and international impact. Since 2015, it has shaped the lives of many and left a strong mark on matters of safety, security and international relations. There is still a significant number of refugees housed at and arriving in Lesvos, the crisis is all but over (FRA update, August 2017).

CESAM believes there are many important lessons to be learned from the experiences local, national and international partners have accrued in dealing with the ‘refugee crisis’ to date, and that these lessons can and should be applied to similar crises – both current and future. CESAM is currently launching a research project in Lesvos to investigate how partners at multiple levels of governance have co-operated and collaborated to face the situation on Lesvos.

Focusing on key aspects of crisis management and organizational identity, CESAM intends to tackle the practical and theoretical challenges stakeholders face when they are thrust together to tackle crises situations. For more information please contact Mark van der Giessen.
