European Lawyers in Lesvos
Legal Assistance for People on the move in Greece
ELIL’s team of full-time Greek lawyers and volunteer European asylum lawyers has been providing legal support to people on the move on Lesvos (since 2016) and Samos (since 2020). They work to uphold the rule of law and defend human rights by providing access to free, independent legal assistance. Thousands of people on the move have been transferred from the Aegean islands to the Greek mainland in recent months and face an increasingly strict and complex asylum framework, often with little legal support. With the support of the Stiftungsfonds Zivile Seenotrettung, ELIL is beginning a new project to provide legal assistance on the mainland.
