FRA report on fundamental rights of children displaced from Ukraine

The Russian aggression against Ukraine: children fleeing Ukraine finding protection in the EU

The EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) has published a series of reports addressing fundamental rights implications in the EU following Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. This third bulletin in the series focuses on displaced children who now find themselves in EU Member States. In June 2023, their number was 1.3 million. The report identifies steps countries have taken to protect the fundamental rights of children fleeing Ukraine. It also highlights areas of concern such as keeping track of children, access to education and mental healthcare, as well as the situation of children evacuated from Ukrainian institutions.

In addition to previous FRA research, the report builds on data collected by FRA’s research network, FRANET. The researchers at the Åbo Akademi University Institute for Human Rights contributed to the report by compiling data on Finland. In order to improve the visibility of FRA and FRANET at national level, the country reports are exceptionally released also in the national languages. The country report on Finland is thus available on the FRA website in three languages: English, Finnish and Swedish.
