Bännpunkt Europa invites you to an interesting seminar with Oksana Shmulyar Gréen: Visa-free travels for Ukrainians within the EU. What to expect: emigration or mobility?

Since 11th of June 2017 Ukrainians can enjoy visa-free travels within the EU. During the first year of the new regulation almost 500 000 of Ukrainian citizens have used this opportunity to visit the EU countries. Is visa-free regime a "a bright spot in the post-EuroMaidan political order" (Duvell&Lapshyna 2015)? What are the general migration ambitions among the Ukrainians? What role visa-free travels and migration play in the Ukraine's nation-state building?

Time: 12:15-13:00

Where: Sprängkullsgatan 19, Room B210
