EU Emergency relocation scheme 2015 - 2018

 

Based on Commission proposals, the Justice and Home Affairs Council adopted in September 2015 two Decisions to relocate asylum seekers from Italy and Greece, to assist them in dealing with the pressures of the refugee crisis. Under the emergency relocation scheme, up to 106,000 asylum seekers with a high chance of having their applications successfully processed (EU average recognition rate of over 75%) were to be relocated from Greece and Italy, where they had arrived, to other Member States where they would have their asylum applications processed. 
 
Between October 2015 and April 2018, IOM assisted the relocation of 34,694 persons in need of international protection with pre-departure health assessments, pre-departure orientation and movement management. A majority of them were male (63%), adults (68%), and of Syrian (52%), Eritrean (35%) and Iraqi (11%) nationality. The scheme also benefitted 585 unaccompanied or separated migrant children.
 
Due to the strict eligibility criteria, the changes in criteria during the implementation of the scheme, as well as the drop in arrivals to Greece and Italy during the project implementation, the number of assisted beneficiaries is considerably lower than the target of 106,000 persons. Almost all eligible persons registered in Greece and in Italy have been successfully relocated to another European state with the assistance of IOM.

Le nombre d'individus observés aux FMPs a diminué de 4% entre le mois de Octobre et de Novembre 2018, passant de 19 415 individus à 18 637 individus.

Results show that the daily average number of individuals observed in October at the FMPs in Nigeria increased by 15 per cent as compared to September.

According to the findings from the Baseline report, across the ten provinces assessed, the Baseline 2 recorded presence of 195,849 migrants, 14 per cent less than the 229,419 recorded in the Baseline 1.

According to the latest available figures from the Turkish Directorate General for Migration Management (DGMM) there were more than 3,9 million foreign nationals present in Turkey seeking international protection.

During Flow Monitoring Registry (FMR) exercises, enumerators collect data on the numbers, provenance, destinations and basic demographic information of travelers transiting through FMPs.

Analysis focuses on the set of vulnerability indicators included in the Flow Monitoring Surveys implemented in Turkey. DTM/MPM team interviewed 3,173 surveys in 14 provinces between December 2017 and February 2018 .

IOM DTM measures mixed migration along the Ugandan (UGA) border through four strategically located flow monitoring points (FMPs). Over 90 per cent of persons observed at these points are South Sudanese.

This weekly situation report covers the reporting period between 11 and 17 November 2018. 542 undocumented Afghan individuals returned to Afghanistan through the Torkham and Chaman/Spin Boldak border.

Au cours du mois d’octobre, les principaux motifs de déplacement des personnes transitant par les points de suivi des flux ont été: les mouvements locaux de courte durée (32%), la migration économique de plus de 6 mois (32%), la migration saisonnière (30%), et le tourisme (6%).

Dans le Nord du Tchad, un point de suivi a été installé depuis avril 2017 dans la ville de Kalait, suivi par l'installation de points de suivi à Faya et Zouarké en mars 2018. Ce rapport présente les données collectées pendant le mois d'aout à Faya et Kalait et les mois d'octobre 2018.

Durant le mois d'octobre 2018, 496 personnes par jour ont été observés en moyenne au FMP de Tambacounda, dont 50% d'hommes, 42% de femmes et 8% de mineurs.

About

Migration.iom.int is an IOM online platform designed to enhance access to Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) migration flow information products, including a visualization of population flows. The DTM also has a second online platform, displacement.iom.int, designed to visualize internal displacement monitored through the DTM systems; this platform facilitates a better understanding of mobility trends within a country in assessed areas.

 

The DTM is a system designed to track and monitor displacement and population mobility, provide critical information to decision-makers and responders during crises, and contribute to better understandings of population flows. The DTM includes four standard components – each comprising various tools and methods – that can be applied, adapted and combined as relevant in a particular context. The standard components are: (i) mobility tracking; (ii) flow monitoring; (iii) registration and (iv) surveys. Data visualized on the flow.iom.int website is retrieved from flow monitoring exercises. 

A Flow Monitoring exercise collects information on the volume and basic characteristics of populations transiting through selected locations - referred to as Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) – during specific observation hours. Data collected includes previous transit point(s), next destination, intended destination (when possible) and means of transportation, as well as the number, sex and nationality of migrants passing through the Flow Monitoring Point. Data is collected overtime through periodic cycles.

Once baseline data is collected through Flow Monitoring exercises. When required and as needed, Flow Monitoring Surveys (FMS) are then implemented to collect multi-layer and multi-themed data on mobile populations. FMS collect data at the individual level and include, but are not limited to, information on basic socio-economic profiles, information regarding the journey (cost, routes, modes of transport, intermediaries) and some basic data on the intentions, expectations, and perceptions of the final destination that migrants have. The findings of these surveys are used in the overall analysis presented in the IOM Flow Monitoring reports.
