According to the official statistics, there has been a strong increase in Ukrainian students coming to study to the Visegrad Group countries. Do the economic development, migration and labour policies of the target countries correspond with the aspirations and plans of the future Ukrainian young professionals? What are the biggest obstacles that these students and graduates have to tackle? How many of them plan to settle in the country where they completed their studies, would like to move west or consider returning back to Ukraine?

The participants of the conference will have the chance to get acquainted with the results of the research project organized among the Ukrainian students in the Czech Republic and participate in the debate about the importance and potential of Ukrainian student migration for the Czech Republic.
