The Invisible Islands: Covid-19 restrictions and the future of detention on Kos and Leros

While there are many reports regarding the difficulties faced by displaced people living in the Reception and Identification Centres (often referred to as hotspots or RICs) of Lesvos, Chios, and Samos, the smaller facilities on Kos and Leros are often forgotten. However, on both islands the hotspots actually make up a large proportion of the islands’ entire displaced population, and therefore require further attention.

This report provides first-hand insight into the situation in the hotspots on Kos and Leros in the spring of 2020. It raises serious concerns not only in regard to the material living conditions, but also the impact of Covid-19 related restrictions and detention practices.
