Migrant crisis, whether on the Polish-Belarusian border or on the southern fringes of the European Union, has been one of the most daunting challenges to European unity and security. Join this discussion on the topic, organized by LSE IDEAS CSEEP at the Jagiellonian University.

27 January 2022, 4:00-5:30 PM GMT (5:00-6:30 CET). Registration is required. 

Panel participants:

  • Dr. Luke Cooper (LSE),
  • Dr. Karolina Czerska-Shaw (Jagiellonian University),
  • Dr. Aliaksei Kazharski (Comenius University).

Chair (moderator):

  • Professor Mary Kaldor (LSE).

Main purpose of this panel is to discuss different facets of migrant crisis in Europe, including consequences of Lukashenko's regime attempts to weaponize migration; how the crisis on Polish-Belarusian border has been interpreted in Poland and Belarus respectively; assessment of the situation ‘on the ground’ from the civil society organizations points of view; and what are effective policies to manage movements of people and support integration. From a broader perspective this debate could also serve as a discussion about consequences of this migrant crisis for the security of Central and Eastern Europe.
