EU-Turkey “deal”: 5 Years of Shame | Through the eyes of those experienced it

The discussion will be in English. The toxic EU-Turkey ‘deal’ signed on 18 March 18 2016, aimed at halting the arrival of refugees and migrants from Turkey to Europe, has trapped thousands of people on the Eastern Aegean islands. Refugees and islanders talk about the effects of the ‘deal’ on their lives and on local communities.
