The Ukrainian Refugee Crisis
Tuesday, April 26, 2022
11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. EDT
Location: Online (5:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. CEST)

The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the associated conflict has resulted in a major exodus from the country as individuals seeking safety attempt to escape the horrors of war. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has recently estimated that in excess of four million Ukrainians have left their country (with over seven million internally displaced), resulting in an extraordinary crisis with major humanitarian and economic implications. This webinar will feature four leading economists discussing the impacts of this ongoing refugee crisis and its implications for Ukraine and the rest of Europe.
