Committee on Forced Migration Presents: Ukraine's Children and The Global Crisis of Child Displacement
Thursday, May 5th 6 PM (Paris)
The extraordinary crisis in Ukraine is just the latest calamity forcing children and their families from their homes, while confronting significant physical and emotional trauma. They face tremendous obstacles to a healthy and successful future, and many will be stuck in limbo for years. With significant disruptions in their education, social development, and healthcare, displaced children face face a bleak outlook for future opportunities. Join our esteemed panelists as they discuss the current situation, how additional conflict and more climate change will worsen the global displacement crisis, in “host” and “donor” countries, and the need to reimagine the approach taken towards refugees.
