Our colleagues from the Social Platform just published a policy paper on the necessary EU solidarity strategy to respond to the Ukraine crisis.
“Europe has responded with unprecedented solidarity to the war in Ukraine, showing the lengths that EU institutions, Member States and communities are willing to go to defend European values and peace. Social Platform members are exemplifying why a robust, empowered civil society and the not-for profit sector are important actors during times of war and peace. Civil society are providing services and working on the ground to give much needed support to those in Ukraine and those fleeing, including reporting on human rights abuses, arranging for safe exits and transfers within Europe, resettling refugees and providing them with accommodation, access to quality jobs, finding places in schools and other educational settings for children and young people and providing essential and basic needs like food, clothing, medicines, healthcare and psychosocial support.”
