In 2015, 1,014,836 people crossed the Mediterranean, arriving on Europe’s shores. One in four of all arrivals was a child, but in SouthEastern Europe this proportion is one in three.
The proportion of children amongst refugees and migrants continues to increase. In Serbia it currently stands at 35 per cent in comparison to 27 per cent in September, while in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia this ratio is 37 per cent compared to 23 per cent in September.
So far this year 972,551 people have arrived by sea in Europe. At least 243,000 of all arrivals are children. More than half of them entered Europe between October and December 2015.
The proportion of children registered at the border between Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia has increased from 9 per cent in June to 35 per cent in the first two weeks of December.
