On 18 March 2016, EU leaders and Turkey brokered an agreement to better tackle and, eventually, put an end to illegal immigration from Turkey to Greece and replace it with legal relocation means. However, less than a month after its fully-fledged implementation, the deal is at the heart of a blazing controversy as NGOs and agencies, such as Doctors without Borders and Amnesty International, deemed it ‘profoundly inhumane, unrealistic and miles away from EU’s core values‘.
