while protecting you can't trust them. hot spots. the future of travel is sustainable possible. in 45 minutes, w. every journey begins with the 1st step and every language with the 1st word, louis pinnacle. rico is in germany to learn german. why not learn with him? it's simple online, on your mobile and free to shut t w's, e learning course, nico speak, german made easy. oh, 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 jest for you. we call it dig in deep. i am michael o t and i am glad to have you hear this
1:31 pm
. 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 will find out why not in cyprus is so attractive for african students. and will 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, a foreign degree could improve one's life significantly. that is why more africans are chosen to study abroad. the traditional destination stuff, 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 african school to the tech s republic of northern cyprus. a country that does not exist. so what is the best place,
1:32 pm
and why isn't it a real country? said buck for a quick history lesson. ah, the de facto states of the tech, his 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 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 a south by greek cypriots. the capital city is divided into nicholas c, i 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 visa, due to isde fact to state us and force in human rights in the north is hot.
1:33 pm
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, been racially profiled and discriminated against. recently, the mafia has reportedly made lorden cypress, it's backyard. so why do many african still study here? the reason could be that softer her africa is witness in a boon in demand for tertiary education because of its young population. and investing 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 essie that said studying cyprus, a world class education center that promises employment in the you. i got curious. so i had trouble there to find out what's happening on that island. and what i
1:34 pm
found out is that, well, all that glitters is sign off for yourself. so come with me with we're in the heart of left kusha in the ancient city in northern side force 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. stocks quite and number no one that they become a pillar of the northern sac cross economy and economy to has me struggling since a turkish cypriots declared independence in 1983 after years of war and crises
1:35 pm
in the early 2 thousands, no university program started to our truck international students with low tuition fees and affordable accommodation. the growing number of students keeps the economy running around 20 universities and the small defact of territory are wound potential graduates. this must be students have in them to find out more. i met with all 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? it, as you know, st press has a lot of terrace locations. so we organized that hers places and then take students their, their response is always like or when is the next one happening? ways are happening, puts me on your broadcast list so i can get a notification. so yeah, that sounds amazing. but stood and life cannot always be blissful when i asked
1:36 pm
about potential problems. oh, my insists so far. you can know how everything in every country days, always going to be somebody new somewhere. bought it the when you check the bad news compared to 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 leases in discrimination and even the death of some students. is this the same modern cypress?
1:37 pm
there must be something hopping in yet. 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 meet brutus cleaned up as students 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 chemistry for called. currently, i have are more than almost 10 students who are just pop in partially with france because they came and did accommodations. some of them why the agent told in the price and other stock the os as college at and did talk ish. stay low at mount, why the international students pay high amount for god's sake we student displays us or have a job. why shouldn't be like as plot,
1:38 pm
yet it is completely addiction. you feel the death of my he has blocked ation as leticia, but no prospects for whack and under financial pressure, some students choose desperate meshes. one of the mum bread us left thea with me. i do do the same best information he got from the indian luck did his work. so when he came, he went to school the 1st semester and they said was almost up when imperious 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, finalize all 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 is probably 2 of the struggling work up to be one rating us
1:39 pm
where i'm no good, i'm no, i'm the working. i have the money to pay aside a story. the bluetooth have just said they are some of the students who the mean been deported for the things that we will not even close to that a crime. and this gave me a glimpse into education in northern cyprus. however, let me also mention that education events can be found everywhere. to help many international students find the writing by city, no place to stay. 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 some one 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
1:40 pm
cyprus, one of the largest student organizations on the island. and here is what i asked him. and the critical part of this recruitment process is the use of agents by their senior cities. talk to us about how that works. if i went in, for example, the apple for university, i have an understand in the university that's for every student i drink. so northern part of cyprus, all right, i get paid and what $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 it the fees from the students and also pay consult feed from the recipe for bringing the students actually. oh, 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's a huge, almost 2 percent of students that the agenda misled them. right for them. when you
1:41 pm
said the misled them, what, what, what are some of the things that the agent told them that were not true? i mean, we've heard cases as past all right, as well. and not mentioned in that you, it comes in northern part of cyprus just in cyprus, and you may be asking the question, move all the technology information, how these are not able to find the measures. and we did as the questions for some agents on what they told us was we, we really, it, we contact the parents, they will not go to the internet and start searching for information about the type of so it's easier to mislead that way. but of course, we also know that some agents will not talk about you coming to happen. they'll tell you where you're coming to another type of hackers, but they 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 come, but we didn't come on the jobs, the legal we, the vast majority are working in the unregulated or illegal workers, scholarships. well, if she thought sean is going to, she not exists,
1:42 pm
that looks like the system is not regulated at all. how is this even possible? i would the very short answer i would tell you is it's by design. in fact, it is not misleading information. it is traffic in and the institutions and the administration is duty in a part of this. so the entire system is benefiting from the more practices they formation. manuel gave me was not only to step in, but back by heart. 5 voice did a survey of $800.00 students with 79 point one percent of them being more than half of them had bad experiences with ya. agents on an island with little to no student jobs become an agent, could be lucrative. the entry barrier is low. the missing regulation leads to a large number of misled and often for mobile, young people,
1:43 pm
easy pre for loan sharks and all sorts of other exploitation. ask for seal assume 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 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 residence 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 didn't know what to but 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 their major motivation. and they,
1:44 pm
they working construction size. we see young, especially african men to work in the construction sites and to work in the agriculture in the family. 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 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 move. they meet with them in the airport and they take them to private apartments. and a 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 that on 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,
1:45 pm
most of the time they are physically abuse or psychologically manipulated by the traffickers. so this is a very typical sexual exploitation case in the not down part of sex and punish her some light on who these groups. these criminal networks with the abuse of the student is a type of trafficking. we see a lot of porting kind of traffic. her groups being there 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 mean? so in that, in the exploitation of young african goes, we see african woman 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 fizzy was rescue some of these girls. it cannot directly talk to some government in
1:46 pm
africa because this part is more recognized. and really their quest for education should never lead to situations like we've just head, although investigations are ongoing. what i found out is that many of these cases never make it to the attorney general's office for prosecution. the police often says it is conducting more investigations, investigations that really never end. so i confronted bad. lawton, st. ross, minister of education with these problems. some of a lot of international students are facing challenges with regard to discriminate, since it's used to do with russia profile in universities. as a result of the competition selling programs that sometimes did not exist, or a dense, representing the investors in a way that is not accurate. and what is a plan to deal with these issues regarding the international students? her pays them boudreau of your bay. i sure am our people are
1:47 pm
not inherently discriminatory by that. we cannot allow or isolated incidents to generalize their whole takesha community can limit the a couple of the dreamers wealth of total globular. jim's view to room 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 t's you seen agent? how is, are these agents and day day recruitment of leasing recipes? supervised a generally in risk to living kim, the list. sure. that all the universities are in communication with the student. so letter. 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
1:48 pm
want to bring 4 in students who are the ones that are not accredited, are not able to bring students to the island. and julie was shaking and also those engines who mislead students will be penalize her all, even if minor incidents happen or to the uncut michelle of dollars from now they will be held accountable. and hankey bureau entered in berlin. she counted all much that chocolate d, that bird a be all i all wish all sabrina, all on the go to nick estimate of the not a gym to let me let him become an artificial in a state where corruption is rife, get injustice is a slow process still not in, 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 cypress. try to rely on institutions. try to make your research in the
1:49 pm
best way you can don't trust the people that you mean the line. don't trust to the words, 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 almost no job opportunities, no decent job opportunities, i may say for years. 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 the position financially thing. on average, the semester fees in the north, in cyprus, it's about 1000 years. and this is very cheap compared to europe or north america. and because of this, northern cyprus will continue to be hop for those who are looking for achieve
1:50 pm
