heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Environmental Management and Sustainability at the International Hellenic University. The growing and thus far uncontrollable stream of refugees from Middle East and North Africa has created considerable preoccupation and anxiety to governments and societies all over Europe. To establish the theoretical framework, the concept of humanitarian logistics will be briefly examined . Historical data from the 19th century onwards will illuminate the fact that this influx is not a novelty in the European continent and the interpretation of statistical data will highlight the characteristics and particularities of the current refugee wave, as well as the possible repercussions these could inflict both to hosting societies and to displaced populations. Finally, a review of European and national legislation and policies will show that measures taken so far are disjointed and that no complete and also humanitarian management strategy exists . Within this context , the thesis will elaborate on the development of a compact accommodation center made of containers, to function as an initial stage in adaptation before full social integration. This project will aim at maximizing the respect for human rights and values while minimizing the impact on society and on the environment. The overall goal is to develop a project versa tile enough for implementation on further social groups in need of support. The thesis' results could serve as a useful tool for governments and organizations to better plan ahead and respond fast and efficiently not only in regard to the actual refugee crisis, but also in any possible similar disaster situation , including the potential consequences of climate change.
