Ukraine’s Hidden Tragedy – WORKSHOP

Ukraine’s Hidden Tragedy – WORKSHOP

10 July 2018 | Oxford | 12.30-16.00

The workshop will present the results of one of the GCRF/PaCCS Interdisciplinary Innovation Award-winning projects from the 2016 Conflict Theme intake: Ukraine’s Hidden Tragedy: understanding the outcomes of population displacement from the country’s war torn regions.

Led by Irina Kuznetsova and Vlad Mykhnenko, the workshop will focus on the most urgent problems faced by Ukraine IDPs in everyday life discovered during the project’s extensive fieldwork across Ukraine, including housing, jobs, property rights, health care, residential registration, and pensions. The panellists will also discuss the current state of affairs in the areas of eastern Ukraine not under government control.

The workshop will conclude with a set of recommendations developed for international organisations, civic society, national and supra-national authorities aimed at preventing marginalisation and social exclusion of IDPs as well as assessing the economic impact of the armed conflict on Ukraine’s war-torn regions.
