• ACCMR. Athens coordination center for migrant and refugee issues

    Since the beginning of 2015, with Greece’s unprecedented number of migrant and refugee arrivals fleeing conflict, the City of Athens has increasingly adopted a proactive approach towards developing strategies to address the needs of these vulnerable populations. In this context, the City of Athens undertook the initiative to establish the Athens Coordination Center for Migrant and Refugee issues (ACCMR). The initiative aims at the efficient coordination between the municipal authorities and stakeholders operating within the city, such as national and international NGOs, international organizations, and migrant and refugee community groups. Our 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 Athens Coordination Center for Migrant and Refugee issues (ACCMR) has been operating since June 2017 with Stavros Niarchos Foundation as founding donor and with the coordination of the Athens Partnership, under the Vice – Mayor’s Office for Migrants and Refugees.
