We are glad to announce the first result of 'Research Network on Ukrainian Migration' - a session on 'Current Attitudes Towards Ukrainian Refugees and the Responses of European Governments in 8 European countries' that will be held during the 18th Migration Summer School. The Research Network on Ukrainian Migration is a collaboration launched by, initially, four institutions: Centre of Migration Research, University of Warsaw; Migration Policy Centre, EUI; University of Maastricht; UNU-MERIT. The event will be chaired by Pawel Kaczmarczyk (Centre of Migration Research at the University of Warsaw) with Lenka Dražanová (Migration Policy Centre) as an instructor of the session.
The Research Network on Ukrainian Migration aims to bring together institutions working on Ukrainian migration to cooperate on new research, information dissemination, seminars, and the acquisition of new funding and more. Given the current ongoing war in Ukraine and the subsequent displacement of people, the Network will tackle issues around mobility from and within Ukraine as well as issues of reception, integration (social, economic, labour, etc.), remittances, return and reintegration, recovery, development and related topics. The Network takes a comparative approach when possible to these issues. Comparison could take the form of comparisons with other forced migrant groups in Europe (and beyond) and/or comparisons across receiving countries of Ukrainian migrants. Long-term demographic perspectives for Ukraine and the rest of Europe will also be researched and discussed within this network. The Networks aims to become a key information source on migration and mobility to, from and within Ukraine.
