The Ukrainian Refugee Crisis

The Ukrainian Refugee Crisis – The Refugee’s Journey with Claudena Skran

The war between Russia and Ukraine has created one of the largest refugee movements in modern European history. Join Professor Claudena Skran, Lawrence University, as she traces the journey of women, men, and children from their homes in Ukraine to places of safety in Poland, Hungary, and other European states. Dr. Skran will explore the trauma experienced by refugees, first in their homes and then in their exile, and practical ways that ordinary people can help them. Dr. Skran is the author of Refugees in Interwar Europe, has been a consultant for the Refugee Agency of the United Nations, and teaches international relations at Lawrence University in Appleton.
