Foreign students are big business in northern Cyprus, a small breakaway state recognized only by Turkey, but some university recruiters warn they are selling “dreams” in the internationally and economically isolated territory.

A Nigerian student, who requested anonymity, said he expected to arrive in the country whose football teams compete in European tournaments. Instead, when he saw the currency was the beleaguered Turkish lira, he realized it was “not the Cyprus I thought”.

The Mediterranean island is divided between the internationally recognized Republic of Cyprus and a small northern state established after Turkey launched an invasion in 1974 in response to a Greek-sponsored coup.

The self-declared Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) is home to only a few hundred thousand people, but is home to 21 universities officially recognized by the separatist authorities and by Turkey.

International students pay tuition fees in euros or US dollars, and sometimes also for accommodation – a boon to the territory’s isolated economy.

The EU member Republic of Cyprus is facing record numbers of new asylum seekers, most arriving from across the UN-patrolled buffer zone, and accuses Turkey of encouraging asylum ‘influx.

Almost half of the more than 108,000 “active” tertiary students in the north came from outside the TRNC or Turkey in the 2021-22 academic year, according to official figures, including about 17,400 from Nigeria only in the spring semester.

Education Minister Nazim Cavusoglu has estimated that the university sector and its indirect income contributes some 35% of the north’s GDP – “far ahead of tourism”.

– ‘A thing’ –

Many foreign students can enter TRNC without pre-issued visas. All must pass through Turkey due to an international embargo.

Relatively low tuition – sometimes less than $3,000 per year – is a major selling point and is often advertised as being reduced by “scholarships” of up to 75%.

But a university official who requested anonymity told AFP it was a “trick”.

“It’s not like we give these scholarships” to international students, he said, explaining that the discounted price is the actual cost of tuition.

Genuine international tuition exemptions were few, he added.

Universities pay recruiters between several hundred and 1,000 euros ($1,040) in commission per student, sources told AFP.

While many are businesses, the number of informal agents – often current or former students – is said to have exploded.

Some students said they were misled about study or work opportunities, or weren’t told they were coming to a divided island.

Cameroonian Rictus Franck Ngongang, 28, said he wanted “the magic” of easy entry but was duped by a recruiter.

The “first shock” of the business student was to see “that there were 10 of us in a two-room apartment”, after having paid 300 euros for a month’s accommodation.

He was also not enrolled in the course he expected.

He has since set up a support association – also involving agents – to try to help other students in difficulty.

Some recruiters are “selling dreams”, he warned.

– ‘Devastating’ –

At the small American University of Cyprus in North Nicosia – which officials say currently has no stand-alone American university accreditation – foreign students were learning Turkish in a classroom with Ottoman-style windows as the Muslim call to prayer resounded in the divided city.

But Hazan Sherifli, head of student affairs, said half of the school’s 200 international students did not attend.

Some “lose their (financial) sponsors … or other things happen,” said public relations and marketing director Engin Sirvan, adding that it was not the university’s role to control the presence of the police.

A report by the Northern Center for Migration, Identity and Rights Studies said poor foreign students were at risk of falling “into the hands of criminal elements” and the situation “facilitated trafficking and exploitation. human being”.

The Northern Human Rights Platform said it had helped 21 Nigerian female students this year who had been subjected to sex trafficking and terrorized by violence and even voodoo.

The Nigerian student said he was happy with his course but described the economic situation as “devastating”, with his sponsor’s funds no longer able to cover his tuition fees.

He said he was trying to make up the difference and feared being deported because his student permit had expired, adding: ‘We are scared every day.

– ‘Shortcut’ –

The Democratic Republic of Congo and Pakistan, along with Nigeria, were among the top four source countries for foreign students from the north in the spring semester, according to Ministry of Education figures.

They were also among the south’s top four countries of origin for its roughly 16,700 new asylum seekers from this year to September, according to official figures.

‘Smugglers, often posing as agents of private universities’, are often the ones who promote ‘their services to potential asylum seekers’, according to a study commissioned by the UN refugee agency .

In October, Abuja warned of “unscrupulous elements posing as agents and deceiving unsuspecting young Nigerians” over prospects in TRNC.

Education Minister Cavusoglu said legislation was being drafted requiring agents to be accredited with the ministry and provide financial guarantees.

A depiction of modern Turkey’s founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk hung on the wall behind his desk, he also acknowledged that there were up to 15,000 “passive” students who did not attend classes.

Nigerian Ibrahim Isaac, who runs a small agency, had a direct message for prospective students: “If you don’t have the money…don’t come.

Education expert Salih Sarpten said the north was “not prepared” to host so many universities.

The territory is turning into a place for young people who “want to take a shortcut to Europe”, he said.

Marina RAFENBERG

When dozens of Syrian asylum seekers were stranded at the Greek-Turkish border in July, lawyer Evgenia Kouniaki never imagined that taking on their case would lead her to quit her NGO to protest perceived pressure of the government.

But in a country determined to reduce migration from neighboring Turkey, rights groups are facing growing hostility, with some activists walking away from the fight.

Kouniaki told AFP that there were once up to ten people in the Evros region helping victims of controversial “pushback” tactics allegedly used by Greek border forces to send migrants back to Turkey. Athens denies their use.

“Now there are fewer and fewer of us,” she said, complaining that she received less legal work because of her involvement in the sensitive Syrian migrant file.

About 50 aid workers are currently facing prosecution in Greece, following a trend in Italy which has also criminalized the provision of aid to migrants.

“The Greek authorities are engaged in a witch hunt targeting refugees, but also their defenders,” 16 rights groups said last month.

The organizations, which included prominent NGOs Refugee Support Aegean, the Greek Council for Refugees and the Greek League for Human Rights, called on the country’s authorities to stop ‘undermining and demonizing’ migrant support groups .

Despite extensive investigations by the media and NGOs, as well as numerous testimonies from alleged victims, the Greek authorities have always denied the pushbacks.

Meanwhile, Greek officials have maintained verbal attacks on asylum seeker support groups.

“As a Greek… I will not work with NGOs that harm the national interest,” Deputy Immigration Minister Sofia Voultepsi told state television ERT in September.

Greece’s conservative government, elected in 2019, has pledged to make the country “less attractive” to migrants.

– Border wall –

Part of this strategy is to extend by 80 kilometers an existing 40 kilometer (25 mile) wall on the Turkish border in the Evros region.

250 additional border guards are to be deployed in the region by the end of the year.

But on the Evros river itself, the natural border between Greece and Turkey, refugees continue to make their way to Europe.

Humanitarians rarely have access to the militarized zone, which is patrolled by the police, Greek soldiers and the European border control agency Frontex.

In July, two lawyers were charged with facilitating the illegal entry of migrants as they attempted to file asylum applications for two Iraqis and five Turks.

In August, Vienna-based rights group Josoor said Athens was making “tremendous efforts” to link them to illegal trafficking, filing three complaints against them that did not result in convictions. The group ceased operations in October.

“There are very few NGOs left in Greece,” Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi told Skai TV this week.

“Of those who operated (at the height of the migration crisis) in 2015-2019, the vast majority left the country on their own accord,” he said.

Kouniaki’s group at the time, HumanRights360, became embroiled in a row after helping the 38 Syrian asylum seekers stranded on an islet in the Evros River for several days.

Asylum seekers claim a five-year-old girl died of a scorpion sting during this time.

But Athens has sought to refute that claim and has since tried to discredit the aid workers who came to help them.

The director of HumanRights360 backtracked after initially claiming the islet was Greek, which would have blamed migrants from Athens, only to publicly say it was Turkish.

Many of the NGO’s staff, including Kouniaki, resigned in protest at the about-face, insisting that HumanRights360’s hand had been forced by the government.

– “Toxic” rhetoric –

“We had to deal with dozens of similar situations…but this high-profile case embarrassed the government,” said Kouniaki, who was denied access to the camp in northern Greece where the Syrians were held. then were taken away.

Athens has moved to control the work of migrant groups, arguing that regulation is needed as they encounter vulnerable people.

New registration requirements were imposed in February 2020. In September 2021, a new law criminalized charities undertaking rescues at sea without the approval of the Greek Coast Guard.

Critics have warned that the new regulations will harm services to thousands of vulnerable people.

Last year, the Council of Europe’s human rights commissioner, Dunja Mijatovic, warned that the law would “seriously hamper” NGOs’ rescue and monitoring work.

Anti-NGO rhetoric became “toxic” from February 2020 when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would allow asylum seekers aiming for the EU to cross Turkey’s borders, Lefteris Papagiannakis said, Director of the Greek Council for Refugees.

“Athens accuses Ankara of instrumentalizing the refugees and using them to destabilize Greece. As a result, NGOs defending them are portrayed in public discourse as agents of Turkey,” Papagiannakis said.

The UN special rapporteur on human rights defenders, Mary Lawlor, said in June that there was “increasing criminalization of humanitarian aid” in Greece.

She also criticized “hostile comments” towards human rights defenders who “are described as traitors, enemies of the state, Turkish agents, criminals, smugglers and traffickers” – sometimes by key figures in the government.

How will cybersecurity develop as we approach 2023 and what are the likely key trends for the coming year, both in terms of the threat landscape and the types of technologies and processes companies will need to develop to to defend oneself ?

To get an overview, Digital diary spoke with experts at LogRythm. From these conversations, a disturbing emerging trend emerges: Cyberattacks will thrive in an economic downturn.

It is also likely that there will be changes in tactics in terms of what cybercriminals do. For example, ransomware operators are set to replace data encryption with corruption.

The first expert in place is Kevin Kirkwood, Assistant CISO. Kirkwood begins by identifying the top business target: “Supply chain attacks will continue to be one of the biggest threats to businesses using open source software.”

It follows, says Kirkwood: “Organizations should be on high alert for supply chain attacks if they are using open source software. In recent years, hackers have become more strategic when it comes to exploiting open source software and code. 2023 will be no different. Bad actors examine code and its components to gain a deep understanding of its flaws and the most effective ways to exploit them.

To stay ahead of the curve, Kirkwood recommends taking a broader base of thinking: “Most people think of ‘supply chain attacks’ as an attack on the physical pipeline that will stop people from producing physical products. Software supply chain attacks are similar in nature to the physical world. Developers use libraries, executable code, and code snippets to complement their software products. If these elements are compromised and malicious code is inserted into these elements, the end product that the developer has produced becomes a means for threat actors to compromise the product and potentially gain access to the system that hosts the software.

These vulnerabilities fuel recommendations for business activities: “In 2023, we will see malicious actors attacking vulnerabilities in open source vendors at their fingertips with the intention of compromising the global supply chain that uses third-party code. Attackers will infect open source repositories and chrome stores with malicious code and wait for developers and other end users to show up and grab new sources and plugins. Without a robust scanning program and an “organized zone” for source code and plugins, businesses will continue to be at risk.

Kirkwood is also concerned about the current economic situation, noting that during an economic downturn, cyberattacks will thrive. He notes, “When it comes to malicious attackers, organizations need to be acutely aware that we’re not talking about machines or software on the other end, we’re talking about creative human beings who are driven and will do whatever it takes to achieve their goal of receiving more money.

Kirkwood adds, “As organizations balance international turning points with Russia’s war in Ukraine while downsizing their operations, threats will inevitably continue to evolve as cybercriminals seize this chance to up their attack game during recession. Therefore, it is crucial that all organizations be proactive with their security strategies and adopt endpoint technologies and other security solutions that provide preemptive capabilities.

The second expert is Andrew Hollister, CISO. Hollister fears that ransomware operators will stop encrypting in favor of corrupted files. As he explains, “Ransomware has been a continuously developing attack vector over the years and is perhaps the single common threat keeping all CISOs up at night. In 2023, we will see ransomware attacks focus on corrupting data rather than encrypting it.

Elaborating on these risks, Hollister notes, “Data corruption is faster than full encryption and code is immensely easier to write because you don’t need to deal with complex public-private key management or provide code. complex decryption to reverse the damage. once the victim has paid. Since almost all ransomware operators already engage in double extortion, i.e. exfiltrate data before encrypting it, the option to corrupt data rather than engage in encryption effort has many attractions. If the data is corrupted and the organization does not have a backup, this puts the ransomware operators in a stronger position, as the organization then has to either pay or lose the data. Therefore, the importance of backing up critical business data has never been greater. »

Hollister also predicts a trend to take place with IT. Here, cybersecurity budget conversations will focus on securing critical business assets.

Looking at the drivers of this, Hollister notes, “During difficult economic times, an organization’s management will focus on reducing what it perceives to be non-essential costs. It is critically important that when leaders think about cybersecurity budgets, they take the time to carefully analyze and understand what they are protecting from a business perspective.

This leads Hollister to its final recommendation: “As cyberattacks continue to increase, I anticipate that more and more organizations will redouble their efforts on frontline prevention and detection technologies to stay safe and aim to consolidate cybersecurity tools wherever possible.”

The University Grants Commission (UGC) recently revoked the requirement to publish research papers in quality journals for obtaining a Ph.D. The movement presented as a push to increase the number of doctorates. incumbents will have a negative impact on the quality of research, says the student union. This, coupled with no MPhil requirement, direct entry to PhD after graduation, etc., is expected to hamper the future of PhD.

All India OBC Students Association (AIOBCSA) said in an official statement, “When the entire academic world thrives on quality publications in reputable journals, any effort to undermine the publication of quality publications will only hamper the future of the doctorate. holders”.

MPhil Fellows were required to present at least one research paper at a conference or seminar. On the other hand, doctoral students had to present two research papers at conferences or seminars and publish at least one paper in a peer-reviewed journal before submitting their thesis. However, in the new doctoral program regulations made public on November 7, the commission has removed this requirement.

Although not required, many universities screen applicants based on the highest scores.

“Breaking down all barriers through our continuous efforts and hard work to produce quality research. We must demand the Government of India to provide more financial aid and put in place proper safeguards to bring inclusiveness to all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).

THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) — Greece has strongly protested Turkey’s decision to refuse entry and detain a Greek regional governor who arrived by boat in Izmir to preside over the plenary session of a regional body.

Apostolos Tzitzikostas, governor of Central Macedonia and first vice-president of the Committee of the Regions of the European Union, said Turkish authorities had provided no reason for refusing him entry on Saturday and keeping him in a room for more than six o’clock.

“We unequivocally condemn the unacceptable and completely unjustified detention and entry ban imposed on the Governor of Central Macedonia by the Turkish authorities in Izmir,” the Greek Foreign Ministry said.

Eventually, after protests from Greece and the EU, Turkey lifted the entry ban, but Tzitzikostas decided to leave anyway and not attend the 13th Plenary Session of the Regional and Local Assembly Euro-Mediterranean, a body he chairs, on Mondays and Tuesdays.

One of the last remaining Caribbean islands with COVID-19 restrictions is lifting some of its requirements. Saint Maarten will no longer require visitors to present proof of vaccination or a negative test result to enter the country, from November 1.

“St. Maarten has done exceptionally well in its fight against… COVID-19,” Tourism Minister Omar Ottley said in announcing the change, according to the Caribbean Diary. “The country is now fully committed to restoring economic activity, and one of the key aspects of economic revitalization is the return of visitors in large numbers.”

This news will not only benefit the Dutch side of the island, but also the French side of St Maarten as the majority of visitors arrive via Princess Juliana Airport on the Dutch side where the requirement was still in place.

The St. Maarten Hotel and Tourism Association had urged action to help the travel industry recover.

Ottley acknowledged this during his announcement, but also warned the nation to remain vigilant in the fight against the pandemic.

“At the same time, as we focus on rebuilding our tourist destination, our work will continue to protect people, including our visitors,” he said.

The action comes about a month after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention moved the island nation into its moderate risk category, or Level 2, for COVID-19.

Previously, St. Maarten had been listed as “unknown” by the CDC due to insufficient data.

According to Caribbean Diary, St. Maarten is the latest of the Dutch Caribbean islands to drop entry requirements. Bonaire, Aruba, Curacao, Statia and Saba had all previously dropped vaccination status or negative tests as entry requirements.

Ottley issued a warning, however.

“St. Maarten must remain vigilant and keep in mind that prior to COVID-19, hotels and the island faced other communicable diseases that harmed the economy and the population,” he said. -he declares.
