Will energy disruptions in Ukraine this winter cause a new wave of migration?
Will the disruptions in food and fertilizer exports caused by the Ukraine war lead to famine in Africa, further increasing migration flows to Europe and the U.S.?
These and other issues will be addressed in a panel discussion, sponsored jointly by the Center for Immigration Studies and the Hungarian Migration Research Institute, on Thursday, October 13 at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time. Experts from the United States and Europe will examine the refugee and internally displaced people (IDPs) challenges produced by the war and faced by Ukraine, Europe, Africa, and the United States.
Hear from a top Polish government official how that front-line state has taken in 1.4 million refugees from Ukraine. Hear from researchers who have recently returned from a fact-finding trip to Ukraine about internal displacement and the energy situation as winter approaches. Hear how Ukrainians are coming to the U.S. now, and what we might expect in the future.
