The Ukrainian War and its impact on immigration


Last weekend, a series of missile attacks by Russia against Ukrainian cities, including the western city of Lviv, which houses a large number of internally displaced Ukrainians, raised the possibility of a new wave of migrants from Ukraine. But other factors, such as potential energy disruptions in Ukraine this winter and food and fertilizer exports leading to famine in Africa, are also expected to affect the number of immigrants from Ukraine and Africa.

These and other issues will be addressed in a panel discussion jointly sponsored by the Center for Migration Studies and the Hungarian Institute for Migration. American and European experts explore the refugee and internally displaced persons (IDPs) issues created by war and facing Ukraine, Europe, Africa and the United States.

Hear from a researcher who recently returned from a fact-finding trip to Ukraine about internally displaced people and the energy situation as winter approaches. Hear how Ukrainians are coming to the US today and what to expect in the future.
