During the massive influx of refugees and migrants in 2015, Serbia was mainly a country of transit on the route to European Union for the several hundreds of thousands fleeing war and persecution. Even after the EU-Turkey Statement in March 2016 and de facto closure of the borders along the so-called Balkan route, the perception of those that remained stranded did not change and Serbia was still not considered as a destination country by most refugees and migrants, even though transit became ineffective and drastically prolonged compared to 2015 and early 2016.
Trends and key figures
Between 1 January and 31 July 2018, 18,510 persons arrived in Italy by sea. This is an 81 per cent decrease compared to sea arrivals in the same period last year (95,213). Just over 1,900 persons reached Italian shores in July 2018, a significant reduction compared to arrivals in June (3,136) and May (3,963). The reduction is even more significant when compared to the numbers of refugees and migrants crossing the sea to Italy in June 2017, when 11,461 registered at landing points.
Between 1 January and 30 June 2018, 16,566 persons arrived in Italy by sea. This is a 80% decrease compared to sea arrivals in the same period last year (83,752). Just over 3,100 refugees and migrants arrived by sea in June 2018, a decrease compared to the 3,900 who reached Italian shores in May and a significant reduction compared to the 23,500 refugees and migrants who crossed the sea, mostly from North Africa, in June 2017.
Overview and developments
Between 1 January and 31 May 2018, 13,430 persons arrived in Italy by sea. This is a 78% decrease compared to sea arrivals in the same period last year (60,228). Over 3,900 refugees and migrants reached Italian shores in May, which is an increase compared to numbers registered in February, March and April. However, monthly arrivals are significantly lower than in May 2017, when almost 23,000 were registered at landing points in southern Italy.
Global Overview JULY 2018
In a complex and fast-changing world, we remain focused and resolute in pursuit of our goal – to provide the most appropriate, effective medicine in the harshest of environments. As well as responding to vital needs, our aid is born of a desire to show solidarity with people who are suffering, whether as a result of conflict, neglect or disease.
3,529 new refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants were counted in Serbia on 22 July (compared to 3,357 two weeks ago), of which 3,124 (i.e 88%) were accommodated in 18 governmental centres (below chart refers, also see June 2018 Site Profiles). Some 400 were observed outside the centres: 150 in Belgrade City, another 150 camping close to borders with Croatia or Hungary and up to 100 in Loznica, close to the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Depriving someone of their freedom is a terrible violation. Modern slavery is a destructive, personal crime and an abuse of human rights. It is a widespread and profitable criminal industry but despite this it is largely invisible, in part because it disproportionately affects the most marginalised. This is why measuring this problem is so crucial in exposing and ultimately resolving it. The information contained within the Global Slavery Index is critical in these efforts.
3,357 new refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants were counted in Serbia on 08 July (compared to 2,997 recorded two weeks ago).
