Wei Kang and Shuo Mao

Abstract—In recent years, due to the high-frequency growth and increasing cross-border nature of all kinds of emergency events, which has made the emergency management ability of a single organization in the face of all kinds of emergencies is not so prominent. How to strengthen the cooperation of different organizations in emergency management has become a major problem to be solved by the governments at all levels. Many scholars in various fields have also carried out a variety of theoretical research and management practice. This paper introduces the role of cooperation mechanism under the institutional collective action framework in the emergency management in the face of different types of emergencies. The emergencies are divided into natural disasters, social security events, disaster accidents and public health emergencies. This study found that cooperation mechanism with different degree of autonomy and complexity can effectively help organizations strengthen their willingness to cooperate, promote formal and informal exchanges, promote the rational flow and effective allocation of resources and promote effective collective action. And the binding and bridging mechanism is more popular with the organization participants in all levels of government when dealing with all kinds of emergencies, while other types of cooperation mechanisms focus on different types of emergencies according to their own characteristics. Through the in-depth study of cooperation mechanism under the institutional collective action framework, it also provides a new idea for the domestic emergency management.

Index Terms—Emergency management, emergency, institutional collective action, inter organizational collaboration.
