Challenges 2022 is a series of events, which cover the most daunting political and security developments, affecting Central, South and Eastern Europe. The migrant crisis, NATO’s new strategic concept, energy security in Central Europe, or looming war in Ukraine are a few examples of current challenges the region faces. Challenges 2022 brings together renowned scholars and experts to share their analyses in a series of online panel discussions.

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.

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.
