'Education is a basic human right', but how many refugees and asylum seekers have access to that right in Greece?
Migrant children can find it difficult to maintain their access to formal education. For many, education is interrupted for several years at a time. For others, education can be a reason for migration, or an opportunity in the host country. In Greece, those who are seeking asylum or are refugees have a right to the country’s state education but a little less than half of refugee children are not yet signed up to formal education.
