Researchers from the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER), the University of Luxembourg and the European Migration Network (EMN) discuss the issues related to the massive inflow of refugees from Ukraine and the need for monitoring its consequences and implementing a solid evidence-based action plan to improve refugees’ integration.
This Research Note refers more specifically to the situation of Ukrainian refugee women and children (ac-companied and unaccompanied), in relation with three specific issues of this crisis:
(i) the historic decision made by the European Council of granting refugees immediate protection with the Temporary Protection Directive;
(ii) the high human trafficking risks due to the population involved;
(iii) the challenges of integration and accommodation caused by the scale of the crisis.
