Established in September 2020, after the fires in the Moria reception centre on the Greek island of Lesvos, the Task Force Migration Management works with the Greek authorities and EU agencies to improve conditions for migrants arriving to Greece. The Task Force was established based on an agreement between Greece and the European Commission. It is also supported by a group of Member States.
The programme 'Hellenic Integration Support for Beneficiaries of International Protection (HELIOS)' helps people to become part of a new community when they have been granted asylum, also known as international protection.
Two years ago, when fires destroyed the camp in Moria, Europe responded rapidly as countries sent aid to help the host community on Lesvos. The European Commission funded transfers of asylum seekers to the mainland.
As part of its comprehensive approach on migration, the EU helps its countries to put in place an effective system for sustainable migration management based on solidarity and responsibility sharing.
