About the Event
Russia’s War in Ukraine has set an entire region in motion. Millions of Ukrainians have fled their homes, sheltering in their country, or fleeing across borders. The ongoing crisis of displaced communities, migrant workers, and trafficked persons from within Ukraine and Russia will continue to preoccupy policymakers at national and local levels, as well as international and community NGOs and ordinary citizens. This workshop will examine the movement of millions of Ukrainians and others affected by Russia’s invasion as they shelter in Europe/Eurasia and overseas in Canada. It will also examine the strains on host societies created by the internal and external displacement of millions and the broader streams of movement from Across Eurasia. Refugees, representatives of refugee organizations and scholars-at-risk will join emerging and established experts to highlight refugee agency as well as reactions of host societies.
