On Tuesday, 12 July 2022, the FEMM Committee jointly with the LIBE and EMPL Committees held an Inter-parliamentary committee meeting on the rights of Ukrainian women fleeing the war. The meeting took place from 14:30 - 18:00.

The three committees discussed with national parliaments the challenges faced by people fleeing Ukraine, mainly women and children, and the EU's policy responses.

The ICM consisted of two panels:

Panel I under the title "Situation of Ukrainian women refugees with regard to reception conditions, protection measures and safety risks" jointly organised by FEMM and LIBE committees

Panel II under the title "Ukrainian women fleeing the war: Access to social protection and the labour market, housing, childcare facilities and education" jointly organised by FEMM and EMPL committees.
