7:30 am
optical instruments, card size didn't devices billing his me one d. b feature. in science into realms 175. starts june 19 w. hello and welcome to a very special edition of the 77 percent. i'm excited to show you a new series that we've been cooking just for you. we call it dig in deep. i am michael o t and i am glad to have you hear this . miss shaw s about education and the lens that some young people go. so yes, what's coming up in our new series? dig in deep, we'll find out why northern cypress is so attractive for african students and will
7:31 am
also uncover this come exploitation and human traffic in some of the students have to endure. and we'll get into the mind of a human mental calculator. in many african countries or foreign degree could improve one's life significantly. that is why more africans are chosen to study abroad. the traditional destinations have always been bureau, north america, and china. but literally, a lot of africans are going to this tiny island, specifically it's year about $20000.00 africans go to the texas republic of northern cyprus, a country that does not exist. so what is this place, and why isn't it a real country? said buck for a quick history lesson. ah, the de facto states of the texas republic of northern cyprus must not be confused with the republic of cyprus in the south, which is part of the european union. the island of cyprus was divided in 1974 after
7:32 am
a series of conflicts that resulted in turkey occupied in norton house. in 1983, the north unilaterally declared independence, which is only recognized by turkey. to day, the north is largely populated by turkish cypriots and the south by greek cypriots . the capital city is divided into nicosia in the south and left cush up to the north. they night admissions maintains a buffer soon to avoid any fed, a horse till it is between the 2 sides. it is illegal to cross the border without a valid vsa, due to isde fact to state us and force in human rights in the north is hot. regardless in the last 2 decades, the law has seen a spike in international universities. as of this year, around $20000.00 africans study in that not because education is relatively cheap. some of the students have however,
7:33 am
been racially profiled and discriminated against. recently, the mafia has reportedly made lorden, cyprus, it's backyard. so why do many african still study here? the reason could be that sub sahara africa is witness in a boon in demand for tertiary education because of its young population and invested degree could mean a better paying job and possibly a better life. so when i saw this well produced but ambiguous video of a student is jesse, that said, study in cyprus, a world class education center that promises employment into you. i got curious. so i had trouble there to find out what's happening on that island. and what i found out is that, well, all that glitters is sign off for yourself. oh, come with me with
7:34 am
we are in the heart of left kusha in the ancient city in northern cyprus, this mediterranean island office, not just history, but also international education. and as a reason why each year several 1000 african students show up on this island looking fun international degree. so, what makes it so attractive? we find out us of this year between 20 and 30000 african students study in northern cyprus, given an overall population of less than 400000 inhabitants. that's quite and number, no one that they become a pillar of the northern st process economy and economy to has me struggling since a turkish cypriots declared independence in 1983 after years of war and crises in the early 2 thousands, no university program started to attract international students with low tuition fees and affordable accommodation. the growing number of students keeps the economy
7:35 am
running around 20 universities in the small defact of territory are wound potential graduates. this must be students have in them to find out more i met with or my in the room who is a student and editor of a trouble magazine. so besides education, what do students get out of this place? as you know, st. press has a lot of terrace locations, so we organized the tories places and then take students there. their response is always like, oh, when is the next one happening? ways to happening puts me on your broadcast list so i can get a notification. so that sounds amazing, but stood and life cannot always be blissful. when i asked up with his shop problems, omar insists so far you cannot have everything in every client you days. always going to be somebody new somewhere in the when you check the bad news compared to
7:36 am
the positive aspects. of course you would find a bit of higher ground for the positivity this talk about bad news made me suspicious. so i decided to do some begin of my own. and what i found was disturbing. i've seen stories about racism, discrimination and even the death of some students is this the same modern cypress . there must be something happening here. i want to talk to some students to find out if there's another side to the northern cyprus story on the outskirts of left kosher. i'm about to me to prove to skimmed up as students
7:37 am
up near east university as president of the library and students association. he said a lot of complaints from other students who came to the island by agents recruit us, who promised them easy work and affordable accommodation. but a reality is, is connell's faithful. currently, i have are more than almost 10 students who are just popping partially with france because they came and in accommodation on some of them. what the agent told in surprise and other stock the us as college at and did talk ish stay low amount. while the international students pay high amount for garcia, we student displays us or have a job. well, it shouldn't be like an as plot. yet it is completely addiction. you feel the death of my he has blocked ation as location, but no prospects for whack. and under financial pressure, some students choose desperate measures. one of my brothers left thea with me or
7:38 am
do do the same missing information. he got from the it in like did his work. so when he came, he went to school the 1st semester in the summer semester. opponent, biggest to wish him, he couldn't be his wish. and so he decided to venture to this off, he got arrested and he was sent to jill brutus himself faces severe financial difficulties because his agent did not tell him the truth. on top of all that, just recently his landlord arbitrarily increased the rent and how are you going to manage it? well, that's a tough question. well, actually, it's probably 2 of the struggling. i work up to be a $189.00 where i'm no good, i'm no, i'm the working. i'm gonna have the money to pay aside the story. the brutus has
7:39 am
just said they are somewhat of students who the mean been deported for things that we will not even close. he got a crime, and this gave me a glimpse into education in northern cyprus. however, let me also mentioned that education isn't, can be found everywhere they help many international students find the right university noplace to see also in the t r n. c. there are events who have done a fantastic job, giving some students a good experience, but others whose mis presentational, fox, half, who some students in a really difficult position. so i went to find someone who knows a bit more about these agents, him and all artillery, if a ph, d students and co founder of voice shot for voices of international students in cyprus, one of the largest student organizations on the island. and yes, what i asked him, a critical part of this recruitment process is the use of agents by the senior cities. talk to us about how that works. if i went in, for example,
7:40 am
the apple for university, i have an understanding move the university for every student i drink. so in other kind of cypress, all right, i get paid about $500.00 to $600.00 by the university. i also reserve the right to ask for a feed from the student i'm bringing. and so, so just to understand that the agent able to take agency fees from the students and also paid consult fees from the recipe for bringing the students actually certainly, and i think the really bad thing about the whole agency issues, it's not regulated. in fact, we do know from some of the saudis that we've done that a huge, almost 2 percent of students set the agenda, misled them, and i to them when you said the misled them. what, what, what are some of the things that age and told them that were not true? i mean, we've heard cases as past. all right, as well. not mentioning that you are coming to northern part of cyprus,
7:41 am
justin cyprus, and you may be asking the question, move all the technology information. how are these forms are totally not able to find the yamisha. and we did ask this question for some agents on what they told us was we can we relate or contact the parents. they will not go to the internet and start searching for information about type a. so it's easier to mislead that way. but of course, we also know that some agents would not talk about your comments suppository. well, your commission has been part of cyprus, but he don't give you the full picture. you are told, for example, well, you can get a job when you come here. you can get a scholarship when you can, but students come on the on no jobs on the legal week. the vast majority, i work in the unregulated or as illegal workers scholarships, well, it's gonna ship our shipment is going to ship to not exist that it looks like the agents system is not regulated at all. how is this even possible? i would know that the very short answer are i would tell you is that it's by design . in fact, it is no longer misleading information. it is trafficking and the institutions and
7:42 am
the administration is beauty. i've been a part of this, so the entire system is benefiting from the general practices. therefore mentioned a manual gave me was not only disturbing, but backed by hot fox voice did a survey of 800 students with 79 point one percent of them being african more than half of them had bad experiences with your agents on an island with little to north student jobs become an agent, could be lucrative. the entry barrier is lower than missing regulation leads to a large number of misled and often formal young people easy pre for launch shocks and all sorts of other exploitation as per seal, assuming a human rights lawyer tells me. so yeah, you are telling me about a mill students who also end up in the construction sector. explain again how that
7:43 am
works. so what they do is that sometimes they try to find jobs, they can't. so they fail to pay the university as they become passive students. so they become irregular to them at the same time. and they can go back to their counselors, for our variety of reasons, either because they're scared that they will be judged by their parents because their parents have paid a lot for their child to go up road. you know, especially in some african cultures. this are very, very valuable things to send someone up wrote and they, they don't know what to what to do when they go back to their counselors without even a degree. so they still have a hope that they can work and in the future, once they save money, they would complete their studies. basically, this is the major motivation. and they, they work in construction size. we see young, especially african men to work in the construction sites. and to work in the agriculture in the farmers especially mean, of course you don't have to mention that means, but are there specific examples of human trafficking that you have personally dealt
7:44 am
with? yes, yes. i mean, actually many cases, and they are recently monster related to trafficking of young african girls into and they're forced into sex at work basically by personnel traffickers or sometimes criminal groups. and they deceive them. and when they arrive here they, they meet with them in the airport and they take them to private apartments. and the few days later, they start telling them that they need to engage in prostitution. and that they have depths to that traffic or so we called it upon date, in the literature of human trafficking. so they, they say that they are not allowed to leave home. they're not allowed to go to the university. and if they resist, most of the time they are physically abuse or psychologically manipulated by the traffic. so this is a really typical sexual exploitation case in the not down part of sept. yes. and punish her some light on who these groups are. these criminal networks with the
7:45 am
abuse of the student is a type of trafficking. we see a lot of porting kind of traffic, her groups being that and their numbers are getting higher and higher each year. basically, i'm trying to understand when you see foreign tropical groups, what are some me so in that, in the exploitation of young african goes, we see african women and african men engaged mostly. but also they have collaboration with some locals as well. i mean, it's just horrible and to make matters worse because they're t r n c is a de facto state. it is really hard to enforce human rights on when groups like physiologists rescue some of these girls. it cannot directly talk to some government in africa because this part is more recognized. and really their quest for education should never lead to situations like with just head all door investigations are ongoing. what i found out is that many of these cases never make
7:46 am
it to the attorney general's office for prosecution. the police off in sess, it is conducting more investigations investigations that really never end. so i confronted ben lauren, st. ross, minister of education, with these problems. some of a lot of international students are facing challenges with regard to discrimination issues to do with russia, profile in universities as a result of the competition selling programs that sometimes not exist or agents represented in wes, this in a way that is not accurate. ah, what is the plan to deal with these issues regarding the international students? her face will drop off by a show m r p pool on nor t inherently discriminatory. we cannot allow, although isolated incidents to generalize their whole takesha community in limerick
7:47 am
. a couple of them to the gym as well thought total globule. jim's view to them. bill. yeah. but despite all of this, um, they are issues with misrepresentation and students getting here and finding out that their reality um is not what is actually on the ground. and this is regards to destiny de invest. he's you seen agents, how is, are these agents and they recruitment of leasing recipes. supervised a generally in risk to learning kim, the with sure that all the universities are in communication with the student solar eclipse. but with regards to the agencies, we are preparing a legislation, beyaza's, the agents have to be accredited by the ministry of education. if they want to bring 4 in students who are the ones that are not accredited, are not able to bring students to the island. what injury was shaking and also those edge and so mislead students will be penalize her all even if minor incidents
7:48 am
happen. but also then cult michelle of dollars from now they will be held accountable. and hankey rode in japan, burly because she kept it all much that chalk, matthew, that bird a be all i all wish all sabrina, orlando, to nick estimate other a gentler emily timber coloma occur figured in a state where corruption is rife, get injustice is a slow process still, lawton, sy, processed great universities. the of them round in the times, high education list, but for your own safety, facility soon has some advice. don't rely on an individual to come to the non competitive cyprus. try to rely on institutions. try to make your research in the best way you can don't trust the people that you meet online. don't trust to the words of saying that you will easily find the job here because it's not true. we have an economic crisis here and it's going to get verse and there are basically
7:49 am
almost no job opportunities, no decent job opportunities. i may say 4 seasons here. so probably, even if you find the job you would be exploited and you would not be able to to seek justice after that. so, and plus, make sure that you are financially sustainable enough. and so that if you have any problems here, you wouldn't be in a position financially say on average the semester fees in the norfolk cypress is about 1000 years. and this is very cheap compared to europe or north america. and because of this, northern cyprus will continue to be a hub for those who are looking for achieve degree. but you need to understand that it is not europe, and it is not the republic of cyprus. and more importantly, in need to listen to the advice that physio, as just given. if you've had any experience in northern cyprus, getting talked with us by our social media and also via email 7 to 7 at dw dot
