"When you increase the control, you also increase the un-comfortability of the population"
Since the EU-Turkey deal in 2016 the European Union claims Turkey is a "safe third country" for migrants. And whilst this was always a questionable claim, in the last two years the situation has become increasingly worse for migrants in Turkey. Reports of overcrowded detention centers, xenophobic and racist prosecution on the streets, and increased police hunting people in the street have been increasing at an alarming rate especially in the last few months. In order to find out what is really happening on the other side of the Aegean Sea I went with fellow journalist Hibai Arbide to Izmir, the third biggest city in Turkey and main departure point for refugees trying to cross into Europe.

As we traveled through the city, we learned about it's rich migration history and we spoke to activists, lawyers and media&advocacy experts working on the ground there to find out what is the current conditions of migrants and refugees in Turkey. And in order to answer the fundamental question: Is Turkey a safe third country for migrants?

These episodes were produced by Dirk Tobias Reijne in collaboration with Hibai Arbide Aza and Diyar Saraçoğlu for VON UNTEN and Radio VC Mytilini.

Episodes can be heard at any time on CBA and Spotify.
