The undersigned civil society organisations would like to share their concerns regarding the phenomenon of illegal refoulements at the Greek-Turkish borders. A phenomenon which is ever-present and yet qualitatively and quantitatively on the rise the last few years and in particular the recent period since March 2020, which should also be read within the framework of the more restrictive policies applied on the EU level.

We are strongly opposed to the closure of PIKPA and Kara Tepe. The closure of these facilities will endanger refugees’ and asylum seekers’ integration prospects, and undermine all efforts towards humanitarian and viable migration policies. This will be to the detriment of both asylum seekers and refugees, as well as of the local communities of Lesvos.
