Legal Note on the living conditions of beneficiaries of international protection in Greece

Oktober 2017

This legal note, inclu­ding a series of con­duc­ted inter­views with affec­ted refu­gees, pres­ents the pre­ca­rious exis­tence of bene­fi­cia­ries of inter­na­tio­nal pro­tec­tion in Greece.

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.
