The increase in Syrian refugees in Turkey has led to the development of a lucrative trade in women. In their desperation, refugee families are selling their daughters to Turkish men. The young women are subject to abuse and discrimination.
The controversial EU refugee agreement with Turkey has been running for two years. But there are still several hitches, with particularly the question of funding still not completely settled.
The refugee deal between the European Union and Turkey went into effect two years ago. Brussels is touting it as a success, but the reality is much different, says DW's Daniel Heinrich.
The EU has unlocked €3 billion ($3.7 billion) for projects to help Syrian refugees in Turkey in a second payment from the 2016 migration deal. More than a million refugees have already benefited from the funds.
A Turkish man was sentenced to jail for trying to smuggle 51 migrants into Germany last year. The court ruled the man was indifferent to the health and safety of the men, women and children held in the back of his truck.
