Ukrainian war refugees in Estonia was an extension of the RITA C-19 Economy project. Since March 2022, Ukrainian citizens who came to Estonia to escape the war could apply for temporary protection, granting them the right to various services provided by the state and local governments. In order for the state and local governments to better prepare for providing these services, it was necessary to obtain more precise information about the situation and needs of the war refugees who arrived here.
The study was conducted by a research consortium comprising the University of Tartu, the PRAXIS Centre for Policy Studies and the Estonian Centre for Applied Research CENTAR.
The studies were commissioned and funded by the Estonian Research Council through the program “Strengthening Thematic Research and Development Activities” (RITA), supported by the European Regional Development Fund under Activity 1 “Support for Strategic R&D Activities“.
