The EU budget makes it possible to respond to emergencies its Member states may face.

For instance, after the acceleration of terrorist attacks in Europe, the EU decided to help its Member States in countering terrorism, a field belonging to national competences but that necessitated a common action from all the Member States. Then, via the fund for internal security, the EU supports the management of external borders, VISA policies and police cooperation at the European scale. This fund also finances the new European border agency.
