CMR Webinar “Ukrainian Cities at the Forefront of the Response to the post-2022 Internal Displacement”, 12.01.2024, 14:00-16:00 CET

This event is part of our CMR Migration & cities webinar series. It will feature five distinguished researchers and experts from Ukraine who will discuss the response of Ukrainian cities related to the arrival of internally displaced people (IDPs). The speakers will discuss the main needs, challenges, and ways to address them developed in the Ukrainian urban context. The webinar is aimed at the wider international community of researchers and practitioners. It will also facilitate networking with Ukrainian experts and create future cooperation opportunities.

It has been almost two years since the full-scale Russian attack on Ukraine on February 24th, 2022, that triggered the largest forced migration in post-World War-2 Europe. While much public attention has been paid to the multilevel responses across the European Union to the forced migration from Ukraine, not much is known about how Ukrainian cities responded to the arrival of internally displaced people. This webinar aims to give a voice to the local experts from Ukraine and learn about the challenges and responses across Ukrainian cities to the arrival of displaced persons. We will also discuss future long-term solutions to urban internal displacements.
