Launch of FATAL JOURNEYS 4: MISSING MIGRANT CHILDREN Report

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) will launch FATAL JOURNEYS 4: MISSING MIGRANT CHILDREN Report on 28 June 2019 in New York.

Since 2014, IOM’s Missing Migrants Project has recorded the deaths of more than 30,000 people during migration worldwide. As many migrants’ bodies are never found or identified, the true number of deaths is likely much higher. For the past five years, IOM’s Fatal Journeys report series has explored the knowns and unknowns of migrant deaths and disappearances worldwide. This event will share the key messages of Fatal Journeys 4: Missing Migrant Children.

This volume of Fatal Journeys reviews over five years of data from IOM’s Missing Migrants Project on migrant deaths worldwide, and focuses on a special theme – missing migrant children – as a growing number of young people across the world have been embarking on dangerous migrant journeys. According to IOM data, more than 1,600 children died or disappeared during migration since 2014, though many more deaths go unrecorded. The focus on children is part of IOM’s contribution to a recent call to action launched by UNICEF, UNHCR, IOM, Eurostat and OECD to improve data on migrant and refugee children.
