Ukraine: Forced Migration Information Hub

Information sources

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 "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. We deliberately focus on essential sources to provide a short and thus user-friendly list.
