Athens Coordination Center for Migrant and Refugee issues
Vice – Mayor City of Athens for Migrants, Refugees and Municipal Decentralization, Public Issue
The Athens Coordination Center for Migrant and Refugee issues (ACCMR) was established to lead the efficient coordination of initiatives on migrants and refugees in Athens. The center brings together municipal authorities and stakeholders operating within the city, such as national and international NGOs, international organizations, and migrant and refugee community groups with the aim of responding to immediate and longer-term needs. Its main goal is to shape the necessary conditions for the smooth integration of migrants and refugees currently living in the city of Athens, but also for dealing with emergency situations linked with future migration flows.
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.
