Temporary Protection - 10.05.2022

What is local and regional governments’ role in welcoming Ukrainian refugees?
Many women, minors and elderly men are settling within the borders of the European Union. To date, over 5.5 million Ukrainians have been forced to leave their country. They seek refuge especially in the EU’s border countries, such as Poland and Romania.

The EU’s activation of its Temporary Protection Directive (TPD) in early March 2022 demonstrated national governments’ unanimous willingness to welcome Ukrainian refugees. It guarantees immediate and temporary protection for people fleeing war in Ukraine for one year, automatically extendable by periods of six months for up to a maximum of three years.

But what are the responsibilities of local and regional governments, notably in areas such as health, housing and employment? Find out by reading the analysis of local governments' role in the Temporary Protection Directive by IncluCities.
