Violence Within State Borders: Greece

This report initiates a new branch of our network that will document violence within a states borders, separate to cross-border pushbacks. Greece is the first case study in a bi-monthly series that will explore patterns and trends in states along the Balkan Route. Here, we look more broadly at violence in Greece before honing in on three focal points:

    • State run detention facilities
    • Lesvos after the Moria fire
    • The port of Patras.

This report was produced by through joint collaboration within the Border Violence Monitoring Network’s (BVMN) new Internal Violence Working group with input from a number of network members such as Are You Syrious and No Name Kitchen. In addition, key content was contributed by our colleagues at Disinfaux in reference to the Lesvos fire.
