The Working Group Samos from the RLCB established the legal information project on Samos in response to European externalisation policies in 2018. The founding team consisted of Franziska Schmidt, Lina Herrmann, Philipp Schönberger, Andreas Eibelshäuser, Jenny Fleischer, Nora Gohrt and Daniel. The basic idea was to have a team of 2-3 legal counsellors, 2-3 interpreters, 1 coordinator and 1 supervisor on Samos. The former team held legal workshops several times a week in different languages to inform asylum seekers about the asylum procedure and adjective law. In addition they arranged personal meetings to answer specific individual questions.
The work of this group built the fundamental base of our future work here on Samos.
