Description of the programme

Following what has been dubbed as the ‘migrant crisis’ in Europe (2014-2016), policy makers, NGOs, academics, as well as national and international configurations have largely approached the issue of migration through the prism of an emergency situation, which needed to be ‘handled’. Almost a decade later human rights are beginning to take a more central role in migration debates, be it scholarly or policy related. Europe is still dealing with human rights related issues from push-backs to inadequate integration policies, such as the rights of migrants and refugees to health, education and housing. In these areas, judicial courts and politicians have sometimes found themselves in a tense relationship as lawyers have sought to uphold migrants’ rights. Furthermore, continued migration flows or the potential future arrivals of sanctuary seekers into Europe continue to stem from various geographical locations, such as Sub-Saharan Africa, Ukraine and, as of late, Gaza. The underlying factors of current migration flows vary from conflict and territorial invasion to social unrest, poverty and unequal development.

Why Thessaloniki?

Why Thessaloniki?

Thessaloniki is now a modern European city in Northern Greece, situated in the Gulf of Thermaikos of the Aegean Sea. It is the second largest city in Greece and the capital of the region of Central Macedonia. Throughout its fascinating and continuous history of 2500 years, the city welcomed and accommodated a significant number of refugees and migrants; Jewish, Armenian, Turkish, Slavic and Greek populations have co-existed for many years, creating a vibrant metropolis.
