Abstract (EN)

The Ithageneia campaign focuses on raising awareness on the issues that youth with migrant backgrounds face in Greece. Youth with migrant backgrounds or second generation are seen and treated as migrants and not as Greeks, both by society and the State since they are not granted Greek citizenship. The main targets of the campaign are to inform the majority society about the problems those youngsters face, to fight the stereotypes and prejudices that accompany them, to challenge the jus sanguinis model of citizenship acquisition, to promote diversity and make them visible as vital parts of the younger generation of Greek People which includes the diverse people of migrant and Greek origin who were born and/or raised in Greece.

Angelegenheit/Herausforderung und
Ziele/Annahmen

In Greece, up to 200.000 children and young adults born to immigrant parents are considered and treated as “aliens” with no access to Greek citizenship and no sense of belonging in Greek society. Our goal is to claim the right of all children to become equal citizens of the country in which they were born and/or raised by:

  • Promoting a legal framework that ensures the right to citizenship for children of immigrant origin
  • Raising awareness of this issue throughout Greece, Europe, and internationally through our campaign: Ithageneia.org
  • Educating Greek society to recognize and accept that these children belong in Greece regardless of their origin. The right to Greek citizenship for all children born or raised in Greece regardless of the origin of their parents is seen as a means to fight discrimination, xenophobia and stigmatization of a specific group of people because of their ethnic background, religion or phenotype.
Wie funktioniert das?
  • An online petition (www.ithageneia.org) used to raise awareness and to collect signatures from people in Greece and abroad
  • A blog (secondgenerationgreece.blogspot.gr) with contributions by youth writing about issues regarding citizenship, legislation, racism, etc.
  • Public events that promote the campaign including organizing a basketball tournament and a Christmas Fundraiser party, and participating in local festivals and in the Annual Athens Biennale (2013)
  • Gaining media presence through TV & radio show interviews and the publication of articles for online and print newspapers
  • Promotion through the production of a video, TV commercial, animation, and print media
  • Networking with organizations in Greece and abroad
Ergebnisse
  • Establishment of 3 permanent information channels: a blog, a Facebook page and a Youtube channel
  • 2.000.000 people and 100 public administration/political parties reached through dissemination activities
  • 2 common positions/ agreements formulated with relevant stakeholders
  • 50 public officials with increased awareness and knowledge
  • Improved understanding and visibility of the Greek situation throughout Greece and abroad (established European network with second-generation organisations).
  • Second-generation youth and youth in Greece in general have demonstrated a positive reaction towards the campaigns
  • User groups have been either very positive or had a neutral stance 
  • It was found that the target group (administrative actors and politicians) lacked interest in the action.
Evaluierung

We will conduct the midterm evaluation during summer 2014 based on the following indicators:

  • 3,000 hits (PM) on the website,
  • 20,000 brochures disseminated,
  • 1,000 posters placed around the country,
  • 6 campaign events (PY) with 300 participants per event,
  • 4 newsletters (PY),
  • 20 media appearances,
  • 2 stakeholder meetings with public administrators,
  • 10,000 petition signatures.

Verification documents include records of online metrics and media presence, the number of volunteers, attendees at events, peer review of campaigns, etc. The evaluation as well as the whole project is based on a volunteering and in-kind-contributions. Evaluation details will upon completion of the project.

Wer profitiert?

The target population and those who will directly benefit are more than 200.000 children and youth of migrant background living in Greece. In the long term, the campaign may also affect the status of second-generation people throughout Europe. Broadly, Greek society will also benefit since the campaign promotes respect for human rights, social integration, and a democratic and egalitarian society.

Finanzierungsart
und benötigte Ressourcen

The project started with 0 budget since we had no specific funding for the ithageneia campaign. Initial expenses were covered by donations made by the members of the group generation 2.0. People also volunteered their time to implement projects, organize events, and manage the campaign. Individuals also supported the campaign by paying for specific expenses, such as the cost of fliers and brochures. Although the core team was comprised of three members, volunteers offered IT, graphic design, translation, legal, administrative, and other needed services. All of the resources were necessary to support the organization and to promote the campaign.
