Ukrainian Diaspora Integration

The project – in 2024 it is planned to establish a network involving academics, policy makers and the business community in the Baltics, with active participation from Ukrainian displaced people.

By fostering regular meetings, data sharing, and collaborative initiatives, we aim to tackle integration gaps, facilitate knowledge exchange, and formulate sustainable strategies. Our efforts to learn and share best practices are grounded in the ambition to sustainably support Ukrainians displaced by the ongoing Russian invasion. Our project distinguishes itself through collaborative dialogue, direct refugee involvement, and a multi-stakeholder approach in addressing refugee concerns.

Baltic Network

In the initial phase of building the network, stakeholders from the Baltics will be convened, with an emphasis on encouraging regular meetings, data sharing, and collaborative initiatives. This approach is intended to ensure a holistic understanding of the challenges faced by refugees and the development of effective, sustainable strategies.

Beyond Baltics

In the subsequent stage, the project's network will be expanded by inviting international partners from Poland, Sweden, and Germany to the final offline event on SSE Riga premises. This broader collaboration is aimed at facilitating continuous learning and discussions focused on best practices, ensuring the adaptability of the project to the evolving needs of Ukrainian refugees.


A range of both online and offline events will be organized, providing a platform for stakeholders to exchange insights, address challenges, and propose solutions. The significant involvement of Ukrainian refugees will ensure that firsthand experiences play a substantial role in influencing decision-making. The outcomes of these collaborative efforts will be meticulously documented in reports and briefs, offering a valuable resource for ongoing initiatives and future policymaking.


The discussions will offer the opportunity to learn and share knowledge and best practices. These conclusions will be gathered and written up regularly. If you are interested in following, please sign up for updates, and briefings.
