The University of Birmingham invites you to a round-table discussion, with the purpose to share the research results of the project “Ukraine’s hidden tragedy: understanding the outcomes of population displacement from the country’s war torn regions” and explore the best ways of disseminating the results across Europe.
The event will focus on the most urgent issues of IDPs found out in interviews, economic and legal analysis: housing, property, health care, registration and pensions. Topics concerning legal issues around the protection of IDPs, the international community’s role and the conflict’s economic impacts will also be discussed. Based on the research conducted, recommendations are provided for international organisations, civic society and authorities to prevent marginalisation and social exclusion of IDPs.
Panellists: Dr Irina Kuznetsova (principal investigator of the project), Professor Rilka Dragneva and Dr Gulara Gulyieva (Law School, University of Birmingham), Professor Oksana Mikheieva (Ukrainian Catholic University), Dr Vlad Mykhnenko (St. Peter’s College, University of Oxford) and Dr Svitlana Babenko (Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv)
We would be pleased if you could join us and be an active participant in the discussion.
