Between Solidarity and Racism – Ukrainian Roma*-Refugees in Europe

Panel Discussion

12. Mai 2023 / 18:00 20:00 Uhr

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, millions of people are fleeing from the war. In contrast to other – past and present – refugee movements, the access of Ukrainian refugees to the European Union is considerably facilitated. Nevertheless, many Roma* refugees report discrimination and racism during their flight – both in Ukraine and within the EU.

Together with activists and experts from Ukraine, Poland and Germany, we will shed light on the situation of Ukrainian Roma* in these three countries. What forms of racism are they confronted with? How can we fight this racism? And how can we enforce a solidarity that includes everyone?
