Melissa Siegel has taken part in a podcast on the European Response to Ukrainian Displacement

In this discussion with Refugee Project Maastricht (RPM), Melissa Siegel breaks down how migration is a prominent component of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. They compare rhetoric from public officials and civil society in Europe in 2015 and 2022 regarding refugee reception and unpack these situations’ similarities and differences. Going a few steps further, she analyses whether international law distinguishes refugees based on their origins and also lay out the factors boosting a country’s capacity to host refugees. Her discussion with RPM rounds off with a look toward how the current situation will affect the future nature of refugee reception and hosting in Europe. To watch the conversation click here.
