    Abstract

    This paper analyses how EU civil protection is translated (both in a linguistic/conceptual sense and in an organisational sense) in the Nordic states. The analysis builds on interviews with civil servants and illustrates how European crisis management capacities are created. Doing so it also contributes to the debate about Europeanization and how it can be studied. The paper shows that the creation of European crisis management capacities (in a wide sense) leads to Europeanization, which involves a translation process where linguistic/conceptual translation and organisational change are intertwined, and where differing national traditions affect the process.
