The situation

Reception capacity

Due to its location in the Mediterranean, in-between the conflict-affected and asylum regions, Cyprus has the largest reception of asylum seekers in the European Union, per capita.

Currently grappling with the effects of overcapacity as only the third-smallest country in the EU, Cyprus experiences waves of low mobilisation of critical resources and support for arriving migrants and refugees.
