What welcome lies in store for refugees arriving in Central Europe?

05-10-2002

Coming up in this week's programme, we look at what kind of welcome refugees can expect to receive from the people and governments of Central Europe. The residents of a Austrian lakeside resort are up in arms over plans to open a new reception centre for asylum seekers, while the UNHCR slams a new Austrian rule barring some asylum seekers from government-run shelters. We visit a Polish refugee centre to see how asylum seekers are treated there, and also speak to refugees from the former Yugoslavia who've started a new life in the Czech Republic. All that and more in this week's Insight Central Europe.
