The Russian invasion of Ukraine has led to an acute humanitarian crisis. Millions of people have fled the country, and even more are internally displaced. The material destruction is huge and critical infrastructure like roads, bridges, water and power supplies have been damaged.

The humanitarian crisis is acute, but the war also has severe political and economic consequences which will shape the global and regional situation for many years.

Together with the Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies (NCHS), we have the pleasure to welcome you to this seminar on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Key questions for this session are:

  • What is the humanitarian situation in Ukraine like now?
  • What happens to those who have fled? Where do they go? What sort of help do they get? How are they received in the countries they arrive to?
  • What are the aid organisations doing?
  • What can be done on a political and diplomatic level to handle the situation?
