War in Ukraine – Impact on Politics and the Economy

Millions of people are suffering under Russia’s attack on Ukraine. Many are fleeing. The EU and the German government have imposed a wide range of sanctions against Russia. The ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research is investigating the economic consequences of the crisis and migration to contribute its expertise to the public debate. All our findings can be found on this theme page.
