New chief appointed at Greece’s Asylum Service


Greece's Asylum Service, which operates under the Migration Ministry, was assigned a new chief on Thursday.

Markos Karavias, an assistant professor of international law specializing in immigration at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, is formally taking over the post during a particularly pressing period.

He has already been serving as the Asylum Service's acting director for about a month in the place of Maria Stavropoulou, whose term expired in February.
