Assistant in the Legal Counselling Department - Generation 2.0 RED

Antigoni Anomeriti studied at the Department of International and European Studies of the University of Piraeus. Through the Erasmus program, she did an internship at the Immigration Institute of the University of Granada in Spain. After completing her studies, she participated in seminars and specializations in asylum and refugee law as she expressed interest to be involved with the legal rights of refugees, immigrants and generally human rights.

She was an intern at the Cyclades Preservation Fund, an organization that has been set up to help the sustainable development of the Cyclades, thus covering her strong interest for the protection and preservation of the environment. She engaged in the art of debating and has participated as a student in domestic and foreign championships, but also as a judge in student teams and championships.

The position funded by the program is that of the assistant in the legal counseling department of Generation 2.0 RED. The main duty of this role is to assist in the services provided by the department, which mainly concern issues of immigrants’ residence permits, naturalization procedures and second-generation citizenship. For this purpose, individual live sessions are held, where the beneficiaries are informed about their rights, how to submit applications to the competent services depending on the procedure of interest, as well as the supporting documents they need to provide or for any other preliminary issue regarding their legal residence in Greece. In 2020, due to the restrictive measures held by the pandemic, the largest part of requests was served through tele-counseling (phone calls and emails). Finally, the legal department, in close cooperation with the advocacy department of the organization, gathers and highlights the issues identified in residence permits and citizenship (i.e. institutional gaps and administrative problems) proposing solutions and legislative interventions.
