Launch: A Systemic Analysis of the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Refugees, Migrants and Asylum Seekers in Cyprus: Part I - An Overview

The COVID-19 pandemic hit Cyprus hard. As it was the case in other countries, vulnerable groups like the Refugees, Migrants and Asylums-seekers (RMAs) were by far more negatively affected than others.

In cooperation with the young NGO Project Phoenix, which seeks to empower RMAs, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung conducts a report series, analysing the consequences of the COVID-19 Crisis on RMAs in Cyprus.

The goal of this series is to raise awareness for the problematic conditions RMA’s are facing and to make policy recommendations to improve their situation.

As the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Cyprus and the Project Phoenix organise the upcoming event in strict accordance to the recent measures to fight COVID-19, it is accessible online only for the public. Livestreams will be available on our Facebook Page and in the new <link media _blank external-link>media section of our website. It will be possible to raise questions via Facebook.
