Temporary protection for refugees from Ukraine in the Nordic countries – From emergency reception to long-term sustainable response
Event co-organized by UNHCR Representation for the Nordic and Baltic Countries and the Nordic Council of Ministers.
Six months into the welcoming of refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine, it is time to have a look at how the temporary protection schemes have been implemented in the Nordic countries. While there are many similarities, the countries have also used different approaches to the reception of refugees from Ukraine.
The report Implementation of temporary protection for refugees from Ukraine in the Nordic countries that provides an overview of the practices in the five countries will be launched during the event and researchers, refugees from Ukraine and representatives from administration and civil society will share their perspectives on the topic.
The seminar also provides an opportunity for dialogue and exchange of experiences and knowledge. How are the needs of the refugees from Ukraine met in the Nordic countries and how can the countries make the most of their experiences? How should the countries act to safeguard the refugees’ health and welfare and mitigate vulnerabilities? What other issues must be solved when going from emergency reception to a long-term response?
We invite both representatives from public authorities and civil society/non-state actors to contribute with your perspectives and join us for a knowledge exchange across countries and sectors.
