Geneva – IOM, the UN Migration Agency, reports that 57,571 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea through 29 July 2018. That total compares to 112,375 at this time last year.

Spain is currently the main arrival-by-sea country in the Mediterranean with 22,858 migrants arriving since the beginning of the year and 1,866 of them arriving since 25 July alone. This is approximately 16,345 more migrants than arrived in Spain in the same period in 2017. 

Some 18,392 migrants arrived by sea in Italy so far this year, which is 80.6 per cent less than the same period last year.

 

IOM’s Missing Migrants Project has documented the deaths of 2,323 people while migrating to international destinations in 2018. In the Mediterranean alone, 1,514 people have lost their lives at sea since the beginning of the year.

Most recently, six people died and one went missing in the Eastern Mediterranean. On 29 July, a boat in which 16 people were trying to reach the Greek island of Lesvos capsized off the coast of Ayvalik, Turkey. The Turkish Coast Guard rescued nine survivors but tragically, six people drowned, including three babies. One person is still missing. In the first seven months of 2018, an estimated 96 people have lost their lives in the Eastern Mediterranean.

In the Western Mediterranean, three Algerian nationals went missing off the coast of Cherchell, Algeria, when the boat in which they were trying to reach Spain capsized on 20 July. Ten survivors were rescued by local civil protection authorities. On the United States-Mexico border, US Border Patrol agents retrieved the remains of a person in a ranch near Falfurrias, Texas on 26 July.

MAP TRACKING MIGRANT DEATHS AND DISAPPEARANCES

 

 

In 2016, the International Organization for Migration’s Missing Migrants Project recorded the deaths of nearly 7,500 migrants, more than 5,000 of whom perished in the Mediterranean. The number of migrant deaths across most regions of the world is rising and the Missing Migrants Project is the only effort to collect this data worldwide.

Researchers, journalists, and policy-makers, including EuropolMigrant ReportReuters and many other news media sources frequently use our data. These users have differing levels of technical knowledge. We partnered with the Humanitarian Data Exchange to create a visualization that could convey our data in a more effective and understandable way.

The visualization allows users interested in global trends to view the entire dataset, while others can filter the data by a specific region or group of migrants. It is also possible to compare death rates over time and between regions. But the visualization is not just for external users: for our team, it has helped us identify missing entries in the data, and has allowed us to analyse the main causes of migrant deaths in key regions over time.

We will feature the visualization on different pages of the Missing Migrants Project website, customised to help illustrate different aspects of information on migrant deaths. For example, a page on data for the Mediterranean might feature a version of the visualization filtered just for that region, allowing users to explore and compare the data in the way that interests them most.

The Missing Migrants Project collects information on migrant deaths and disappearances across the world on a daily basis from a variety of sources, including national authorities, NGOs, media reports, and interviews with surviving migrants. IOM staff verify this information, then codify it to fit the 20 variables contained in the Missing Migrants dataset. The visualization uses variables on the time, location, and cause of death, as well as the region of origin of migrant decedents.

While the issue of migrant deaths in the Mediterranean has made headlines in recent months, we hope that the new HDX visualization will bring attention to the risks migrants face in other regions as well. We also hope that through more accessible and understandable data, users will be able to provide new research and insights into how to better protect migrants around the world.
