Summary

Crisis management is a form of management in handling extraordinary events, when non-standard methods are employed and in the case of declared states of emergency also related legislation. It is concentrated on man, the natural and the artificial environment and on aspects connected with elements, relations and flows in a system created like that. Its aim is to ensure the sustainable development of human society, including basic functions of the state and the public administration in crisis situations. This is a matter of state administration and self-administration on all levels, private companies, non-governmental and humanitarian organisations and also of all citizens. It is a case of the process the objective of which is to keep the behaviour of the system within acceptable limits, within which desirable objectives are realized and undesirable manifestations are suppressed.
