Laptops for Ukraine: Ukrainian health and public workers need your help to stay connected
3 Feb 2023
DIGITALEUROPE
Since the start of the full scale Russian invasion, it has become increasingly difficult for the Ukrainian people to stay connected. The war has had a devastating impact on Ukrainian infrastructure, and millions of people have been displaced, forcing their work, education and social lives online. It is estimated that 200,000 schoolchildren in the most affected regions are now learning remotely. A severe shortage of electronic devices like laptops, tablets and phones threatens to unplug the Ukrainian people from the internet. If you have a new or used device lying around the house, give it a new life in the hands of a Ukrainian nurse, teacher or student. If you are a company and have spare ICT equipment, use it to support the fight for democracy on Europe’s borders. Your donation could support a hospital to provide essential care, help children to continue their education, or assist a local government to deliver vital services.

Ahead of the EU-Ukraine summit in Kyiv on 3 February, MEPs will discuss how the EU can further support Ukraine in fighting against the Russian invasion. At the Kyiv summit, EU and Ukrainian leaders are expected to discuss continued financial and military support for the country as well as the next steps regarding Ukraine’s bid to join the European Union. In January, MEPs called on the EU and its member states to increase their military, political and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and strengthen their defence in countering Russian threats to European security. During the same plenary session, they again insisted that a special international tribunal should be established to punish crimes committed by Russian leaders and forces in Ukraine. The plenary debate will take place on Thursday, followed by a vote on a resolution the same day.

In his address to the IIEA, Irish Times Berlin Correspondent, Derek Scally, assesses the first year in office of Germany’s "traffic light" coalition. Against a backdrop of war in Ukraine and challenges to energy security, Chancellor Scholz’s government has had to adapt its programme for government. Many ambitious plans have taken a backseat in the face of urgent policy issues. Mr Scally examines the government’s progress in responding to the unforeseen challenges presented in 2022, both from a national perspective and in its role as a leading EU member state. About the Speaker:  Derek Scally is a native Dubliner, who studied at Dublin City University and the Humboldt University in Berlin, where he has been Irish Times correspondent since 2001. Covering politics, business and culture, he is a regular contributor to German news outlets, including Die Zeit weekly and Deutschlandfunk/WDR radio. He reports regularly from northern Europe and is also author of “The Best Catholics in the World”, published in 2021 by Penguin.

EMCDDA webinar: Displaced people and EU preparedness and response — lessons from Ukraine
16 Dec 2022
EMCDDA
Objective: To understand the short- and long-term responses of drug services to a major flux of displaced people and the related challenges. Background: COVID-19 has raised attention in Europe, and globally, on the importance of monitoring preparedness towards potential emergencies. Europe was again put to test with the start of the war in Ukraine. The massive flux of displaced people challenged the health services in Ukraine, in its neighbouring countries as well as in the rest of Europe. The EMCDDA published a preliminary Trendspotter study in July 2022 to investigate the overall situation (an update is planned for 2023). In this webinar we would like to highlight both sides of the coin: the challenges of a country at war and the responses implemented by the receiving countries. The participation of experts based in Ukraine is confirmed although we need to be prepared for possible a black-out during the webinar. In conversation with: Mrs Olga Gvozdetska, Deputy Director General of the Public Health Center, Ukraine Dr Kostiantyn Dumchev, Scientific Director at the Ukrainian Institute of Public Health Policy, Ukraine Mrs Stela Bivol, WHO strategic advisor for TB, HIV, hepatitis and STIs, WHO Geneva Mrs Ganna Dovbakh, Executive Director, Eurasian Harm Reduction Association (EHRA), Lithuania Dr David Otiashvili MD PhD, Director, Addiction Research Center Alternative Georgia, Georgia Mr Artur Malczewski, Polish Reitox Focal Point - National Center for Prevention of Addictions, Poland Chairpersons: Anne Bergenström and Marica Ferri Opening and closing remarks: Jane Mounteney, Head of unit, Public health Format: EMCDDA opening remarks, panellists’ questions, guided discussion, Q&A.

From surviving to thriving: How Europe should support Ukraine in the long war against Russia
16 Dec 2022
ECFR
As we head into the winter, Europeans must confront the reality that the war against Ukraine is here to stay. To brace for such a “Long War”, Europe needs to be ready to take its lessons learned from more than half a year of the war to heart and deliver enduring support to Ukraine. At ECFR, authors Gustav Gressel, Marie Dumoulin, Jeremy Shapiro and Piotr Buras have made their case for a Comprehensive Action Plan to support Ukraine in this Long War against Russia, which is to consist of direct military assistance (such as through tanks), credible security assurances, energy security and gradual economic integration. A Security Compact for Ukraine would aim to increase much-needed cooperation between the security and defence sectors of Europe and Ukraine to deliver the support Ukraine needs to protect itself. But how can Europe stand united against Russian aggression in a Long War, and protect other countries at risk of Russian aggression such as Moldova and Georgia? Which specific areas should a Security Compact for Ukraine encompass? And how can Europe pave the way for Ukrainian integration into the European economic system in the long term? Guests: Keynote: Tobias Lindner, State Minister, Federal Foreign Office, Germany Carl Bildt, Co-Chair, ECFR Hanna Hopko, former Member of Parliament, Ukraine Radosław Sikorski, Member of the European Parliament Chaired by: Lykke Friis, Director, Taenketanken Europa

On 1 January 2023, Czechia will hand over the Presidency of the Council of the European Union to Sweden, which holds its reigns once again, for the third time following previous tenures in 2001 and 2009. During the first half of 2023, the Swedish Presidency has to sail through troubled waters to address some of the most pressing EU issues. The Presidency will be tasked with bringing the European Union out of a difficult winter of soaring energy prices and rising inflation, precipitated by the EU’s response to Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine. Major obstacles, including how the EU should continue to support Ukraine’s fight for a European future, how it should alleviate the cost-of-living crisis hitting European citizens, and more, remain at the top of the agenda, exacerbated by Russia’s war. Amongst these issues, ongoing challenges remain: the climate crisis and impact of Russia’s war on the energy transition, the future of Europe in the context of rebuilding Ukraine after the war, and the ongoing impact of post-truth politics on democratic processes. To scrutinise the priorities and challenges of the Presidency, TEPSA and its Swedish Member Institute, the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, hosted the Swedish Pre-Presidency Conference on 1 and 2 December 2022 in Stockholm and livestreamed online. In the context of the Swedish Pre-Presidency Conference, the DiCE project supported a panel to discuss “The Reconstruction of Ukraine and the Future of Europe”, which took place as a parallel session of the conference between 16:45-18:00 CET on December 1. Speakers: - Nona Mikhelidze, PhD, Senior Fellow, Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), Rome; - Svitlana Chekunova, Leading Expert, Energy, Razumkov Center, Kiev; - Torbjörn Becker, PhD Director, Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics, Stockholm School of Economics; - Matteo Bonomi, PhD, Senior Fellow, Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), Rome; - Moderator: Fredrik Löjdquist, Director of the Stockholm Centre for East European Studies (SCEEUS). #EU2023SE #SwedishPPC TEPSA Website: https://www.tepsa.eu/ TEPSA Twitter: https://twitter.com/tepsaeu TEPSA Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tepsa.eu TEPSA LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/tepsabrussels TEPSA Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tepsaeu/ Music: "The Stratosphere", song by Adam Vitovský

Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine has generated a historic displacement of people fleeing the war, predominantly women and children. By mid-September 2022, close to 5 million individual refugees from Ukraine had been recorded across the EU and other OECD countries, triggering a refugee and humanitarian crisis on a scale not seen in Europe since the Second World War. At this latest EPRS roundtable, Jean-Christophe Dumont, Head of the International Migration Division at the OECD will present the International Migration Outlook 2022: https://www.oecd.org/migration/international-migration-outlook-1999124x.htm. Looking at OECD countries' policy responses to the major influx of refugees from Ukraine, this session will then explore recommendations, including 'dual intent' solutions, designed to give refugees quick access to integration support and opportunities to further build their skills without hampering a possible return to Ukraine once the situation allows. Wednesday 30 November 2022 | 13:30 -15:00 hours SPEAKERS: Juan Fernando LÓPEZ AGUILAR, MEP, Chair, Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Jean Christophe DUMONT, Head of the International Migration Division, OECD Hanne BEIRENS, Director of the Migration Policy Institute Europe Jadwiga ROGOŻA, Senior Fellow, Department for Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova, Centre for Eastern Studies Alberto-Horst NEIDHARDT, Policy Analyst, European Migration and Diversity, European Policy Centre EPRS PUBLICATION: Question time: New orientations for the EU's economic governance framework: https://www.europarl.europa.eu/thinktank/en/document/EPRS_ATA(2022)739199

These tasks require collective efforts and coordination among the country’s policymakers, businesses and international community, including the EBRD. The main objective of this half-day workshop is to bring together representatives of key stakeholders to discuss optimal policies and necessary investments to help the process of Ukraine’s stabilisation and rebuilding. The event will start at 9AM GMT, to be held virtually, will consist of two panels of approximately 1h each.
