This online panel is a collaborative endeavour between multiple institutions across the Euro-Mediterranean region marking together Refugee Week. We seek to stimulate a conversation that reflects critically on the challenges of responding fairly and ethically to population movements caused by wars and calamities.

Starting by addressing the ongoing influxes of refugees from Ukraine into European countries, the discussion will then offer an overview of the responses and of the motives provided by different state and non state actors across Europe both to current and to past refugee and immigrant influxes. We aim to allow plenty of time for Q&A to have a fruitful conversation with each other and with the audience.

Schedule: we expect speakers to present for about 12-15 minutes each in the order below, leaving about 30-45mins for Q&A
