Vice – Mayor City of Athens for Migrants, Refugees and Municipal Decentralization, Public Issue

The Migration and Refugees Coordination Center was created to help supervise and coordinate the actors and initiatives on migrants and refugees in Athens. The center brings together the Municipality with leading NGOs--such as International Rescue Committee--to identify and respond to immediate and longer-term needs.

The initiative is also leading the collection of much needed data on refugees to help improve service delivery and inform planning and policy. This data is being shared with other municipalities and global leaders to aid the refugee response and promote best practices.
