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.

L’OIM travaille avec les autorités nationales, locales et des partenaires locaux, afin de mieux comprendre et connaître les mouvements migratoires à travers l’Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre.

The West and Central Africa Mobility Mapping report is a compilation of maps showing various mobility trends and mobility factors for movements to and from the West and central Africa region (forced displacement, transhumance, labour movements, etc.) This work is based on multiple data collection

This report is an analysis of 17,000 flow monitoring surveys conducted with individual crossing one of the 30 IOM Flow Monitoring Points in the West and Central Africa Region (located in Burkina Faso, Chad, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal) between January and June 2018.

El análisis de los resultados es sobre un total de 7.691 personas de nacionalidad venezolana mayores de 18 años: en Brasil (3.711 entrevistados), Ecuador (2.344 entrevistados) y Perú (1.636

IOM conducted surveys between April and July 2018 in transit and settlement locations of nationals from the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The resulting analysis was derived from the responses of 7,691 Venezuelan nationals over 18 years of age: in Brazil (3,711 respondents), Ecuador (2,344 res

In October 2018, 186,110 movements (88,965 inflows and  97,145 outflows) were tracked by IOM Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) of Myanmar nationals between Thailand and Myanmar in the Mae Sot and Phob Phra district

Over the reporting period, IOM maintained three strategically placed flow monitoring points (FMPs), where DTM teams monitor inflows and ouflows of IDPs, identify and register drought-affected IDP families, and provide newly arriving families with IDP Cards to facili

En estrecha coordinación con los equipos en campo del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores y CONMIGRANTES, se implementó el monitoreo y estimación de flujo de personas migrantes desde el monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo hasta el “Poliedro” que divide las rutas a las distintas fronteras ofici

IOM Guyana designed the first round of the DTM process through the implementation of interviews in two regions (Barima-Waini and Demerara-Mahaica). In Region 1, interviews were conducted with the help of the Toshaos and other community leaders.

Between July and September 2018, a total of 45,092 migrants and refugees arrived in Europe, 14 per cent more than the 39,402 registered in the second quarter and two and a half times the 18,956 registered in the first three months of the year.

According to the compilation of available data from national authorities and IOM offices, a total of 103,450 migrants and refugess arrived in Europe between January and September 2018.

En esta segunda ronda de encuestas de caracterización de personas migrantes en tránsito, se realizaron 286 encuestas, de las cuales 20% eran con mujeres y 80% con hombres.

Le nombre d'individus observés aux FMPs a augmenté de 18% entre le mois de Septembre et d'Octobre 2018, passant de 16 452 individus à 19 415 individus.

From mid-June until mid-August 2018, a total of 4,284 Myanmar nationals were surveyed in the province of Tak, of whom 3,765 were identified as migrant workers. The 3,765 migrant workers fell into two different migrant groups.

Au cours du mois de septembre, les principaux motifs de déplacement des personnes transitant par les points de suivi des flux ont été: La migration saisonnière (29%), les mouvements locaux de courte durée (32%), la migration économique de plus de  6 mois (32%) et le tourisme (7%).

This weekly situation report covers the reporting period between 14 and 20 October 2018.

In September 2018, the average daily number of indiviuals observed at the Flow Monitoring Points increased by 12% compared to the previous month. Nationals from Mali, Guinea, Côte  d'Ivoire, Senegal and Gambia accounted for 81% of all the migrants recorded at the flow monitoring points.

En septembre 2018, la moyenne journalière du nombre d'individus observés aux différents point de suivi des flux a augmenté de 12% par rapport au mois précédent.

Results show that the daily average number of individuals observed in September at the FMPs in Nigeria increased slightly by 0.2 per cent as compared to August.

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.
