This report considers that the ineffectiveness with which authorities have responded to migrants' needs has had a negative impact on the way in which 'foreigners' are perceived in Greece. For this reason, Amnesty International recommends that the reform of the current framework guiding the authorities' migration-related practice should be complemented by policies addressing the problems of discrimination, racism and xenophobia. This document looks at four areas of human rights violations: the legislative framework; detention and ill-treatment of migrants; violations of the ESC rights of the Roma; and, the invisibility of minorities.
