FRA and Committee of the Regions annual dialogue to focus on Ukraine

Organised By
Joint event
On 17 November, FRA and the Commission for Citizenship, Governance, Institutional and External Affairs (CIVEX) will hold its annual dialogue in the European Committee of the Regions.

The panel discussion will look into fundamental rights considerations in the EU triggered by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Local and regional authorities have been in the frontline of efforts to welcome people fleeing Ukraine, often in cooperation with civil society. The discussion will provide opportunities to exchange with CIVEX members on their experiences on the reception and integration of people from Ukraine.

Panellists will include Christophe Rouillon, the French Mayor of Coulaines and Yuliya Chervona, from the NGO, Promote Ukraine.

The annual dialogues aim to discuss fundamental rights themes of relevance at the regional and local level, and to share knowledge of existing fundamental rights good practices.
