Immigration to Greece: Problems and Prospects

(p.191) 13 Greece
Immigration Worldwide

Anna Triandafyllidou

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a comprehensive account of immigration to Greece during the past 15–20 years. It reviews the main demographic features of the immigrant population, discussing critically the main developments in Greek immigration policy since 1990, and explores the immigrant adjustment “model” Greece has adopted. The chapter reveals that after nearly 15 years of massive migration, the country still strives to accept its role as a host society. Migration policy planning lacks a mid- to long-term perspective. Immigrant integration policy needs to be reconsidered to address the social and economic challenges of migration. At the same time a proactive migration planning and a realistic migration control policy are necessary to manage migration through legal channels, avoid the proliferation of undocumented migrants, and combat human trafficking in the region.

Keywords:   Greece, Pontic Greeks, irregular migration, Southern Europe, migration policy, civic participation
