Praxis Protection Monitoring Report on Migration - October 2017

In October, the number of refugees/migrants met and interviewed by Praxis’ mobile team every day did not exceed 300 on a daily basis, including the newly arrived ones, the refugees/migrants accommodated in the Asylum Centre Krnjača and the Reception Centre Obrenovac and those who returned to Belgrade after unsuccessful attempts to cross the Croatian, Hungarian or Romanian border. In this reporting period, Praxis provided assistance to a total of 1883 refugees/migrants, through information, referrals to the targeted assistance provided by various organisations/institutions or covering the costs of transport to the asylum and reception centres.

Praxis continued its field work and provided a total of 1274 newly arrived refugees and migrants (901 adults and 373 children, including 188 unaccompanied and separated children - UASC) in Belgrade with relevant information, which is significantly more than in the previous month when we informed 956 newly arrived refugees/migrants. During this month, Praxis has visited Obrenovac several times thus expanding its activities, in order to provide as many refugees/migrants as possible with relevant and timely information. Out of the total of 1274 newly arrived refugees/ migrants, 213 persons or 16.7% of them were from Afghanistan. A total of twenty-two (22) newly arrived refugees/migrants were from Syria, which accounts for 1.7% of the total number. Four hundred and forty-seven (447) refugees and migrants came from Iraq (35.1%). Three hundred and ninety-seven (397) refugees/migrants came from Pakistan, which is a significantly higher percentage than in the previous period. A total of 126 refugees/migrants (9.9% of the total number of refugees/migrants) came from Iran, which is also a significant increase compared to the previous period in which we informed 26 newly arrived refugees/migrants from Iran. Since the lifting of visa requirements for Iranian citizens, the number of people from Iran who expressed their intention to seek asylum has increased. Five (5) newly arrived refugees/migrants came from Algeria (0.4%). A total of 64 refugees/migrants (5.0%) came from other countries: Bangladesh, India, Palestine, Libya, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Tunisia, Mali, Myanmar and Turkey.
