Challenging Border Violence

The LCL is engaged in advocacy and litigation representing migrants who have been subject to systemic state violence and violations of migrants’ human rights as a part of broader, both legalised and clandestine, state policies of border maintenance. In this context we have represented victims of police brutality, torture, and summary expulsions or “pushbacks”. We have also produced extensive reports and legal analysis demonstrating that Greece is engaging in crimes against humanity against migrants.
