Temporary Protection for People Fleeing War in Ukraine
Researchers and external collaborators of the three sister H2020 projects will discuss the EU responses to people fleeing war in Ukraine, including the implementation challenges and the way forward for the Common European Asylum System (CEAS).
A first panel will examine the current refugee inflows into the EU from Ukraine, how the EU’s Temporary Protection Directive (TPD) aims to address it, the efficiency of the TPD in safeguarding fundamental rights on the ground, and other implementation issues that have arisen (or are likely to arise).
A second panel will discuss the experiences of some non-EU countries in dealing with temporary protection and large-scale displacement of refugees. Discussions will aim at transferring knowledge on alternative solutions to the current protection challenges.
A third panel will explore historical instances of mass displacement into today’s EU territory, how they were addressed, and what lessons can be learned from these past events and the current events for the CEAS future.
