Turkey has effectively suspended its refugee deal with the European Union by withdrawing key personnel, presumably to try and force the EU to meet its part of the deal. Meanwhile, Greeks are taking matters into their own hands, and working directly with refugees to find a solution to the crisis.

At the beginning of this year, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan threatened the EU with ‘bus loads of refugees’ unless a deal was agreed. Conditions included visa-free roaming for Turkish citizens and billions of euros for Ankara to organise refugee facilities. Eventually, the deal was agreed in March, and some of the funds were provided. Turkey, for its part, slowed down considerably the number of refugees fleeing to Europe.
