Forced Migration from Ukraine; an Overview
Though the Russian invasion of Ukraine began months ago, the refugee crisis within the country is ongoing — over 7.5 million Ukrainians have sought refuge outside their country alongside those already displaced within. What can college students do to help those in need?
Join us to understand the relationship between armed conflict and migration, the context of the crisis in Ukraine, and how resettlement is progressing. In addition, speakers will provide an overview of the acute challenges facing non-Ukrainian refugees within the country, and the many internally-displaced individuals who remain within Ukraine. CWS will also present ways that college students can become involved and help to create a more welcoming experience for Ukrainian and all refugees.
