cartina-grecia-centrale-atticaA delegation of the Civil Liberties committee will be in Greece from 22 to 25 May to check the functioning of several reception centres and assess the management of asylum procedures and relocation schemes. MEPs will visit Athens and the islands of Kos and Lesvos. They will meet national and local authorities, as well as representatives of the EU, other international bodies and NGOs.In the context of their current legislative work on the reform of the Common European Asylum System, MEPs aim to understand better the functioning of “hotspots”, notably in view of the EU-Turkey migration deal, and the role of EU and national actors in dealing with the large number of arrivals of asylum-seekers and migrants. The conditions in the Greek reception centres have often been raised by MEPs, particularly regarding vulnerable groups such as unaccompanied minors. The EU´s assistance to Greece for dealing with the registration and management of asylum procedures, the implementation of the relocation decisions and the returns of migrants and asylum-seekers to Turkey in virtue of the EU-Turkey deal are also subjects of interest for the delegation.
