Refugees in CEE

What does it mean to be a refugee in Central and Eastern Europe? How do newly created or dissolved borders influence refugees’ strategies? What are the social, psychological and political aspects of the process of integration of refugees? In what ways are refugees involved in transnational networks and how does that affect their lives? How is the status of international protection differentiated and what is its impact on protection and social status of refugees?

The section Refugees in CEE explores forced migration in Central and Eastern Europe, it points out similarities and differences in the experience of various actors involved in forced migration and it views the problem of refugees in Central Europe from different perspectives. It is presents diverse personal experience and problems that asylum seekers and refugees have come through, but also analyses of asylum policies and public policy measures concerning refugees on national and European levels.
