FRA joins CEPS IdeasLab discussions

FRA presented observations from its first Ukraine Bulletin and missions to the EU’s external borders with Ukraine at the annual CEPS Conference.

FRA was part of the panel ‘Food for thought: Europe’s next refugee crisis?’. Other panellists included the European Union Agency for Asylum, the European Parliament, the UN’s Refugee Agency, the Danish Refugee Council and Lund University.

Together they examined the key medium and long-term issues raised by the triggering of the EU Temporary Protection Directive to respond to people fleeing war in Ukraine. They also looked at its impact on the ongoing negotiations of the EU Migration and Asylum Pact.

The event took place on 1 June.
