  • The Ukrainian Refugee Crisis webinar launched on April 26, 2022.

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.

Event co-sponsored by the Georgetown University Global Economic Challenges (GEC) Network, the Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF), the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), and Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management (Université Libre de Bruxelles).
