The Russian military aggression against Ukraine dramatically intensified migration flows and transborder mobility in the attacked country.
At the beginning of the full-scale war, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner estimated that the number of Ukrainians fleeing the hostilities would reach 4 million people. However, the real scale turned out to be even more striking: the forecasted number was achieved during the first month; and now the Office are talking about potential 8 million displaced abroad by the end of the year.
This analytical note discusses the key challenges faced by the Integrated Border Management (IBM) actors in the face of this intensified cross-border movement as well as the solutions they apply.
