Ukraine: sociologist, refugees should not be 'assimilated'

Some host countries are tempted, but they will return home

(ANSA) - KARPACZ, SEP 9 - "The idea of several neighboring countries to assimilate Ukrainian refugees as quickly as possible is not desirable, first because the assimilation process is different from integration, then because it does not take into account the particularity of forced migration: once the risk has ceased, the Ukrainian population may wish to return to their home country." Isabella Corvino, a sociology professor at Perugia University, said on the sidelines of the panel, "Unprecedented migration crisis: what future for refugees?" at the 31st Karpacz Economic Forum in Poland. "There is a need," she explained, "for a change in approach from a mindset focused on short-term goals to broader planning." (ANSA).
