Original Title:
“LGBTQIA+ refugees/migrants in Greece: addressing the legal and social context”.
Translated title:
“LGBTQIA+ refugees/migrants in Greece: addressing the legal and social context”.
In a dynamic era where diversity and inclusion of all social groups uniformly is of paramount importance, this thesis, entitled “LGBTQIA+ refugees/migrants in Greece: addressing the legal and social context”, explores the challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ individuals in the context of migration, with a particular focus on Greece.
The primary objective is a twofold examination: first, to explore the legal framework governing the rights of LGBTQIA+ refugees and migrants in Greece and its implications during their integration process; second, to explore the social dynamics and cultural factors that shape the experiences of LGBTQIA+ people in the context of migration in Greece. However, it is important to examine and report on whether the barriers stemming from the legal and social context respectively correlate with each other.
Methodologically, the thesis uses an integrated approach, combining an overview of existing legal and social frameworks, analysis of social identities and prejudices, qualitative interviews with LGBTQIA+ refugees/migrants and an examination of the social and cultural factors that influence their integration into Greek society. While additionally shedding light on the experiences and motivations of LGBTQIA+ refugees/migrants in Greece, this study acknowledges the limitations they face in their efforts to integrate smoothly into Greek society. Their influences relate both to their personal experiences before and during their settlement in Greece, as well as the difficulties caused by the shortcomings of Greek legislation and social factors.
