Webinar – The fate of Ukranian refugees
This session examines the key implementation issues and open questions regarding the activation of the EU’s Temporary Protection Directive (TPD) to respond to refugees’ fleeing the war in Ukraine. This will include an assessment of the lessons learned thus far from the practical application of the TPD regime in various Member States, including issues related to practical accessibility to the envisaged set of rights and guarantees – such as access to the TPD status, and rights such as family reunification, labour market, social assistance, housing, etc.
The session includes an assessment of what should be the next policy steps to be taken by the EU. This session falls within the scope of the Horizon 2020 ASILE project. It will also serve as the launchpad of a new e-book co-edited on the EU Temporary Protection responses to the Ukraine War.
