The Border Violence Monitoring Network’s most recent report on conditions in camps and detention centers in Greece has revealed gross rights violations against people on the move, including widespread violence, strip searches (including of minors), and appalling living conditions.  In addition to recording testimonies of pushbacks across international borders, BVMN collects evidence of physical, material, and structural violence against people on the move within state border.
