Fleeing the War Zone: When Return Is Not yet Possible

The Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022 has resulted in a tragic loss of life, destruction of cities and villages and forced millions to flee their homes. The UNHCR estimates the total number of those forced to flee Ukraine has reached 6.8 million by the end of May 2022. 


Three months into the war we return to the discussion of the fate of war refugees – those within and those outside Ukraine. What many hoped would be a short episode followed by a return back home, turns into an extended predicament with challenges at many levels. These challenges and related possible policy reactions will be discussed in a webinar “Fleeing the war zone: When the return is not yet possible” on 8 June 2022 by a panel of experts.


The webinar will be available to join via the Zoom platform. However, registration is required. Please register via Zoom (click here). After registration, you will receive a confirmation email which includes the Zoom link and passcode.
