Caught in limbo on the islands of the Aegean Sea, migrants are contesting the agreement between the EU and Ankara through the courts.

To halt the mass arrival of migrants in Europe, the European Union struck a deal with Ankara to send those who made it to the Greek islands back to Turkey.
But this arrangement is counter to the UN Refugee Convention and has created an untenable situation for those requesting refugee status on the islands of the Aegean. To avoid being sent back to Turkey, most of them request asylum in Greece. Now a group of lawyers has launched legal action to challenge the agreement itself.
