Migration after the invasion of Ukraine: attitudes and policies in Europe
Cappella, Villa Schifanoia and online Via Boccaccio 121 and zoom
Join a workshop co-organised by Mercator Forum Migration and Democracy (MIDEM) and the Migration Policy Centre that will review migration policies beyond the 'traditional' destination EU countries and citizens' reactions and assessment of them.
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, more than 8 million Ukrainians had to leave their country. Countries in Central and Eastern Europe in particular have been facing an unprecedented number of refugees. Poland, for example, a country with a relatively small number of refugees compared to other countries, has quickly become one of the world's major refugee countries. The way citizens respond to the increased influx of refugees has a strong influence on migration policy. This event therefore examines the impact of refugee immigration beyond traditional destination countries on migration-related polarisation and attitudes.
