The Russian invasion of Ukraine generates major refugee movements towards the EU. This prompts discussions at the EU level and within EU member states on how it can best be addressed – as illustrated by the activation of the temporary protection directive, which guarantees immediate access to protection to those fleeing the conflict.
Together with experts from academia, civil society and government organisations, we will discuss the implementation challenges ahead – and how and under which conditions vulnerability assessment tools and processes may help in solving them.
Within the VULNER Project, this event is co-organised by Population Europe and Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology.
