Breakfast seminar at NUPI

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has led to an acute humanitarian crisis. Join this breakfast seminar to discuss how Europe can respond to this situation.

Sign up for the breakfast seminar here.

Millions of people have fled Ukraine, and even more are internally displaced. At the same time, the material devastation is enormous and critical infrastructure such as roads, bridges, water and power supplies have been damaged. The humanitarian crisis is acute.

The Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies, together with the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) are pleased to invite you to an open public seminar on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

Key questions to be discussed are:

  • What is the humanitarian situation in Ukraine like now?
  • What happens to those who flee? Where do they go? What kind of help do they get? How are they received where they come?
  • What do aid organisations do?
  • What can be done at the political and diplomatic level to deal with the situation?


A light breakfast will be served from 08:30 and the seminar will be held from 09:00 to 10:30.

Welcome by Stein Sundstøl Eriksen, Senior Researcher, NUPI and Co-Director, NCHS.

On the panel:

Stein Sundstøl Eriksen will moderate the conversation and there will be the opportunity to ask questions to the panel.

The seminar is free and open to all and will be held in English. The seminar will take place in-person at NUPI in Oslo, but it will also be possible to follow the discussion on the NUPI YouTube channel.
