Abstract in English

This thesis sets out to analyze the similarities and differences in international response to crisis situations, focusing on three particular crisis outbreaks: Mali in 2012, the Central African Republic in 2013, and South Sudan in 2013. It does so by answering the question: How do political and legal motivations affect the response of international actors to a crisis situation? By investigating the responses on three systemic levels—regional, continental, and international—and through both bi- and multilateral mechanisms, the author is able to discern a pattern of when and why international actors respond as they do to a foreign crisis. The thesis begins with an introduction—including an explanation of research and methodology employed—and goes on to further explain the legal foundations of the international organizations involved. Afterwards, a historical background is offered to set the scene for each crisis and is followed by a summary of the commonalities between each situation. Explanations of the legal and political motivations for the international responses in each case are then provided. Finally, an in-depth analysis explores the why and how of each response, resulting in a conclusion as to the motivations of international actors in such situations.
