The present study analyzes the risk factors responsible for the exposure of migrant and refugee children to physical, psychological, and sexual violence and exploitation in Greece in the context of the ongoing migrant humanitarian crisis. It documents sexual and physical abuse of children inside migrant camps and reports new information about the commercial sexual exploitation of migrant children in the main cities of Greece. This research also explores the existing gaps and challenges in intervention efforts that contribute to victimization of migrant children.
According to this article from the Voice of America, migrant children in Greece will begin school next week. The Greek Education Minister states that 1,500 children will be taught at 20 public schools or in classrooms at six refugee camps starting Monday.
