CDCS: the Crisis Center of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs

Published on November 26, 2018
The Crisis Center has a simple but ambitious mission: effectively coordinate France’s response to disasters and crises and minimize the consequences.

The Crisis Center of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs was created on July 2, 2008 at a time when the world was facing frequent crises increasingly (security, climate, humanitarian, political, health, etc.).This year marks the Crisis Center’s tenth anniversary. It is a fitting time to look back at the major events of the previous decade that best illustrate what the CDCS does and to talk with those who work hard to keep it functioning every day. This is also an opportunity to showcase the activities of an atypical department at the Ministry whose actions go well beyond crisis periods as they begin well before and end long after any given crisis.
