Praxis Has Published Protection Monitoring Report on Migration for December 2017

In December, the number of refugees/migrants met and interviewed by Praxis’ mobile team every day did not exceed 180, 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 period, Praxis provided assistance to a total of 1106 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 544 newly arrived refugees and migrants (361 adults - 289 men and 72 women, and 183 children - 154 boys and 29 girls, including 124 unaccompanied and separated children (UASC), of whom 121 boys and 3 girls) in Belgrade with relevant information, which is a significantly smaller number than in the previous month when we informed 865 newly arrived refugees/migrants. Out of the total of 544 newly arrived refugees/ migrants, 96 persons or 17.6% of them were from Afghanistan. Sixty-six (66) newly arrived refugees/migrants were from Syria, which accounts for 12.1% of the total number. Fifty-five (55) refugees/migrants came from Iraq (10.1%), which is a significantly lower percentage than in the previous months (447 in October and 188 in November). One hundred and five (105) refugees/migrants (19.3%) came from Pakistan. One hundred and eighty-five (185) refugees/migrants (34.0% of the total number) came from Iran.
