A new UNHCR Report, Desperate Journeys, offers a brief overview of trends of movements by refugees and migrants to and through Europe in 2017. It also calls attention to various important protection challenges related with these desperate journeys and concludes with recommendations.
The report notes that sea arrivals to Italy, majority from Libya, have decreased greatly since July of 2017. “Journeys to and through Europe for refugees and migrants remain fraught with danger,” said Pascale Moreau, Director of UNHCR's Europe Bureau.
