Ukraine: Forced Migration Information Hub

Besides causing widespread destruction and immense suffering, the Russian attack on Ukraine on 24 February 2022 also forced many people to leave their homes. This has led to mass forced migration and displacement, unprecedented in Europe in this scale and speed since World War II. For this reason, the FFVT project has set up a “Forced Migration Information Hub”.

In addition, they have occasionally advised politicians and practitioners. Here you can find links to the media coverage and further activities of the colleagues from the FFVT network.

Here, we list a select range of websites that provide up-to-date information on the Russian attack on Ukraine, links to a selection of key documents and analyses, and podcasts of academic events. The documents and links are limited to the topics of "forced migration," "integration," "legal situation and policy analysis", and "war." The information provided on the websites and the reports consists of primarily analytical and/or scholarly information, as well as some relevant primary sources.
