Forced Migration Unit – University of Nottingham

The significance of research on forced migration continues to increase and so does the need to identify policy approaches that have international protection at their core. Led by Dr Daria Davitti, the Forced Migration Unit benefits from the collaboration with national and international NGOs, experts and practitioners in international, regional and domestic human rights law, development


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. Its 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.

HumanRights360 is a member of the Representative Council for Research and Documentation (ASET), which was set up by Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity   to respond to today’s challenges in the area of migration. Specialized on rights-based advocacy, ASET intends first to highlight the problems and secondly through study, research and documentation to intervene accordingly towards the best possible solution. The council is made up of representatives of immigrant communities operating in Greece with years of experience and engagement in socio-political activities. Other members also include researchers and experts with experience and expertise on migration as well as in the area of advocacy and rights protection.

Transparency Registry

HumanRights360 is a member of the European Union Transparency Registry since 31.7.2018, Identification Number: 202382032206-34

The EU Transparency Registry has been set up so that citizens can, and even must, expect the EU decision-making process to be as transparent and open as possible in order to allow proper control and accountability of the Union institutions. The more open this process, the easier it is to ensure balanced representation and avoid unreasonable pressures and illegal or privileged access to information or decision makers. Transparency also plays a key role in encouraging European citizens to participate more actively in the democratic life of the EU.

The Transparency Registry was created to answer key questions, including what interests are sought, by whom and with what budget. The European Parliament and the European Commission are jointly responsible for the operation of the system.

Racist Violence Recording Network

The initiative for the establishment of the Racist Violence Recording Network was taken in mid-2011 by the Greek National Commission for Human Rights (GNCHR) and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Greece (UNHCR) on the basis of two major findings: a) the identified absence of an official and effective data collection system on racist violence and b) the need to coordinate organisations which recorded, on their own initiative, incidents of racist violence against people who sought their services. Ever since October 2011, when the RVRN began effective operation, its scope of activity has been constantly growing.

The RVRN is comprised of actors offering medical, social and legal services or/and coming in direct contact with victims of racist violence or victims of other hate- or bias-motivated violent attacks as well as organizations established by the groups which are usually targeted by racist violence themselves. To join the RVRN a necessary precondition is respect for human rights, diversity, multiculturalism, and freedom of religion as well as action in tackling discrimination and intolerance. Apart from the coordinators, the UNHCR and the GNCHR, the RVRN is comprised of 42 Non-Governmental Organisations and civil society actors, as well as the Greek Ombudsman and the Migrants’ Integration Council of the Municipality of Athens, as observers.
