Abstract:The border region Twente-Achterhoek-Münsterland plans to establish a shared Dutch-German fire brigade on the border. Therefore, existing legal instruments and agreements can be used. Possibly, also the European Cross Border Mechanism (ECBM) which was presented in 2017 by European Commission could offer a solution in solving border-related obstacles in this cross-border cooperation. The ECBM allows EU border regions to apply the legislation of another Member State involved in the same cross-border pro-ject for the duration of the project. With its focus on legal and administrative obstacles the ECBM aims at supporting cross-border projects as Project Crossfire. In this thesis, qualitative interviews were used to investigate in which extent the ECBM can be an ad-dition, compared to existing agreements, in solving border-related obstacles of establish-ing the German-Dutch fire station in the border region Twente-Achterhoek-Münsterland.
