Date: 19 April 2022

Time: 14.00 - 16.00 (UK time)

Event Details

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, displacement within and from Ukraine continues unabated. This event seeks to unpack and critically engage with some of the key concerns that have emerged in the context of displacement, with legal questions that have arisen regarding international and other forms of protection, and with the way in which displacement is addressed across different areas of international law (including human rights and humanitarian law and international criminal law).

The event will address the following issues:

  • Access and pathways to protection in Europe;
  • Temporary Protection in Europe;
  • Non-Discrimination and the protection of displaced persons;
  • Risks of trafficking, exploitation and abuse for displaced persons;
  • Displacement and Deportation under IHL and ICL
