Update: Legal Note on the living conditions of beneficiaries of international protection in Greece
The legal note on the precarious existence of recognized refugees in Greece was updated in August 2018 and shows that living conditions for beneficiaries of international protection in Greece have not improved. There are still widespread deficits in the reception, care and integration of beneficiaries of protection.
Beneficiaries of international protection are defined as aliens or stateless persons who have been recognized as refugees or beneficiaries of subsidiary protection status. Not only do refugees belonging to this group in Greece suffer from the lack of integration prospects into the Greek society, but they are often facing inadequate living conditions and humanitarian standards, a precarious socio-economic situation, and even have problems in securing their very existence.
