Christiane Schraml, a community organizer, reports from Berlin, where around 500 refugees arrive every day and find a very poor reception system, having to stand in line up to 10 hours in the cold only to register.

Christiane is currently trying to bring together German citizens and refugees to address the problems related to the refugees crisis, which in her word is an "administrative crisis", and now a political one.

DICO, a network of citizens platforms, is working with its citizens and refugees leaders to build trust between residents and newcomers, and ensure that city authorities address their problems.
