Greece: The Dublin II trap: Transfers of asylum-seekers to Greece
Asylum-seekers in Greece lack protection under the current asylum determination system. They are frequently denied access to the asylum procedure and, since July 2009, have been denied the right to an effective appeal. But the biggest risk asylum-seekers face is refoulement. This report examines the experiences of asylum-seekers transferred under the Dublin Regulation to Greece. It concludes that Greece fails to provide a full and fair asylum determination procedure and calls for the urgent suspension of these returns until necessary improvements are made in law and practice.
