With the closure of the Balkan route, 46,000 exiles are left blocked in Greece. In September 2015, The European Union has committed itself to relocate in other Member States 66,400 asylum seekers. In theory, there is thus no problem. In reality, at the date of April 12 only 615 people have been relocated.

Amnesty International reports the situation of these people stranded in Greece, in terms of the conditions of (non) fosterling, access to rights and access to relocation opportunities in other countries of the European Union.
