Join the Migration Research Group at CEU in the online presentation by Viktoriya Sereda titled Feminized forced migration: Ukrainian war refugees in Poland and Germany.
ABSTRACT: This presentation puts the movement of Ukrainians in historical perspective, describing important differences of Ukrainian migration to Europe prior to the war and now. It is based on the quantitative and qualitative studies conducted among the Ukrainian displaced in Poland and Germany. It offers a comparative perspective with a focus on the social-demographic profile of displaced and how the reception of refugees was different in these two countries. Second, it highlights the impact of the feminized nature of this migration on the concerns and decision-making of refugees and explores how the fact that many women are traveling with children affects their needs upon arrival and ability to meet the challenges of resettlement.
