The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Representation in Cyprus announces two new publications


 The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Representation in Cyprus announces two new publications on Reception Conditions for Asylum-seekers in the Republic of Cyprus and Refugee Education in Cyprus: Challenges and Opportunities

The first paper presents UNHCR’s findings and recommendations based on observations made during regular monitoring of the Kofinou Reception Centre and meetings with asylum-seekers living in the community in the course of 2016. Additionally UNHCR offers a number of recommendations to assist the authorities to significantly improve the national reception system, and ensure compliance with international and EU standards, in particular the recast Directive 2013/33/EU laying down standards for the reception of applicants for international protection, and it is hoped that they will serve as a basis for continued dialogue.  

The second paper outlines the current challenges and opportunities in refugee education in Cyprus and takes a closer look at access to the national education system for children at the reception centre, unaccompanied children, mainstreaming and other schooling options. In order to address the difficulties identified regarding the schooling of refugee and asylum-seeking children, a series of recommendations are offered. Additionally, integration measures are also highlighted, given the continuing difficulties with the integration of asylum-seeking and refugee children into their new school environment. 

“Refugees have skills, ideas, hopes and dreams… They are also tough, resilient and creative, with the energy and drive to shape their own destinies, given the chance.” UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi
