Symposium "Seeking Refuge, Finding Solidarity? Challenges and Chances for Ukrainian Protection-Seekers in Europe".

01/06/2022 10:00 - 01/06/2022 15:00

Taking into account the legal aspects of protection of Ukrainian refugees in Europe, the Law Faculties from University of Zagreb (Croatia), Ruhr University Bochum (Germany), University of Lodz (Poland), University of Deusto, Bilbao (Spain) and Koç University, Istanbul (Turkey) as members of UNIC alliance, are organising the Symposium “Seeking Refuge, Finding Solidarity? Challenges and Chances for Ukrainian Protection-Seekers in Europe on June 1st 2022.

In the three months since the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, over six million Ukrainians have sought protection in neighbouring countries, but many more have been forced from their homes and displaced within their own country.

At the EU level, the Council of the EU invoked the Temporary Protection Directive which grants Ukrainians the right to stay, work, and study in any EU member state for an initial period of one year. However, as in the application of every other EU directive, EU member states have national laws and regulations that envisage the application of the temporary protection regime within their home countries.

The symposium will focus on three topics: 

  • National Regimes for Ukrainian protection-seekers in Europe.
  • The Role of Law Faculties/Universities in providing support to Ukrainian students and scholars.
  • The Right to Leave and Discriminatory Admissions of Protection-Seekers

Key note speakers of the programme are:

  • Cathryn Costello (Hertie School and the Centre for Fundamental Rights, Berlin, Germany) & Itamar Mann (Faculty of Law, University of Haifa, Israel)

Date: Wednesday 1 June 2022

Location: The event will take place online 

Time: 10 AM - 3 PM CET
