ProMosaik’s Denise Nanni and Milena Rampoldi conducted their next interview — about refugees and asylum seekers in Greece —with Ismini Karydopoulou and Alice Fevre of the Greek Forum of Refugees in Athens. As stated on its website, the aim of the association is to create a Panhellenic network of individuals, legal professionals and communities, working to support asylum seekers, political refugees and stateless persons, as well as any others who may meet the criteria set by the Convention of Geneva and the protocols attached to it, or the Greek framework for the protection.

The main obstacles for refugees in Greece are the lack of opportunities to either learn the language or to find employment for them. Furthermore their social inclusion is very difficult because of the country’s economic crisis and the lack of relevant information. On our website there is a short film entitled “Integration Now“ focussing on this issue.
