During the first two months since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on
February 24th 2022, almost 5 million people [6] left the country.
Polish cities, NGOs and ordinary residents faced an unprecedented
challenge in Europe’s post-war history to address their needs. Large
cities, and increasingly also small towns need to respond to the needs
of a growing population of 2.8 million forced migrants who crossed
Polish borders, providing them with shelter, education, employment,
healthcare system and social services.  This series of CMR Webinars
“Migration and Cities. Managing the crisis” aims at discussing major
challenges experienced by Polish local administrations, NGOs and other
stakeholders who serve forced migrants and identifying solutions that
worked well in other contexts.  

This webinar will focus on policies addressing the educational needs of
forced migrants. First, the Polish-based panellists who represent
organizations engaged in facilitating access to the education system for
forced migrants will discuss the main challenges they experience. Next,
the panellists with expertise in education policies from other countries
will discuss the best strategies that could be implemented in Polish
cities or be some lessons learned in the Polish context.
