The Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (EURUS) and the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at Carleton University are hosting an upcoming roundtable, “Ukraine’s Refugees in Europe — Needs, Policies, Responses.” The online roundtable will take place on Thursday April 14, 2:00-3:30 pm, on Zoom.
Since February 24, 2022, when the Russian invasion of Ukraine began, approximately 10 mil. Ukrainians have been displaced, with more than 4 mil. sheltering in neighbouring European countries. According to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) Commissioner, Filippo Grandi, this is “the fastest growing refugee crisis in Europe since World War II.” This roundtable brings together experts from Europe and Canada to discuss the current situation of Ukrainian refugees, the responses of the European Union and Canada to the ongoing humanitarian crisis, and possible lessons learned from other conflicts with recent mass migration.
Our panel of experts will include:
- Maciej Duszczyk, Professor, Faculty of Political Science and International Studies, University of Warsaw
- Masa Kateb, Advisor, Refugee Advisory Network, Canada
- James Milner, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, Carleton University
- Saime Ozcurumez, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science and Public Administration, Bilkent University
- Catherine Woollard, Director, European Council on Refugees and Exiles
- The discussion will be moderated by Agnieszka Weinar, Adjunct Research Professor, Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies, Carleton University
