We have now been asked again to return to Lesbos.
The project will be coordinated this summer by Ramyar Hassani, Hannah Rosenfeld, Juliane Assmann and James Jakob Fehr.

We now invite interested peace activists who can serve on the team this summer to apply as delegates. We are looking for persons who can serve for a minimum of two weeks on team. The team will be stationed in Mytilene; the work will be in response to the changing needs of the local activists, especially dialoguing with refugees, monitoring human rights conditions, observing court cases.
