In the past two years tens of thousands of refugees flooded into Europe. Now, the European Union, in agreement with Turkey, has established a number of measures to curb the flow of refugees through Greece into Western Europe. This has resulted in a large reduction in the number of refugees arriving daily, but has also stranded approximately 50,000 refugees in Greece, primarily in Athens.
