Navigating the Complex Landscape of a New Deputy Ministry for Migration

The proposal to create a new Deputy Ministry for Migration in Cyprus is facing a multitude of challenges, including legal issues, staffing concerns, and opposition from various groups. The Institute of Demographic and Immigration Policy has recommended amendments to the bill, while the public servants’ union Pasydy and social welfare services have raised concerns about transferring employees. Additionally, community unrest has sparked questions about the location of migrant teen protection centres. Despite these obstacles, the journey towards establishing a more comprehensive migration policy framework continues.
