Free legal information and legal support for all asylum seekers and refugees on Samos.

I HAVE RIGHTS is a new non-profit organisation that emerged from the Refugee Law Clinic Berlin after working on Samos for more than three years. Together with Avocats Sans Frontières we are working in the SAMOS LEGAL CENTRE on individual cases like interview preparations, family reunifications and appeals.
The international team consists of lawyers, legal experts and interpreters.

I HAVE RIGHTS in the media:

What we do

We make justice accessible

Our international team of lawyers, legal interns and language mediators provides asylum seekers in the EU “Hotspot” Samos with free legal information about the asylum procedure, supports them in reuniting with their families in Europe and challenges Europe’s degrading treatment of people seeking refuge in front of the European Court of Human Rights.

Work with us

We pressure stakeholders

In our understanding, the situation on Samos is not a humanitarian crisis, but the result of EU policies. We give a detailed portrayal of each individual case that we bring in front of the ECtHR and publish different campaigns on our advocacy page. By exposing the systematic, degrading conditions asylum seekers in the Greek “hotspots” have to live in, we want to put pressure on stakeholders to achieve systematic change.
