List of 34,361 documented deaths of refugees and migrants due to the restrictive policies of « Fortress Europe »

Documentation by UNITED as of 5 May 2018

UNITED has been collecting reliable data on refugee deaths related to Fortress Europe since 1993. In the period 1993-2018 at least 34,361 refugee deaths can be attributed to the ‘Fatal Policies of Fortress Europe’. Most probably thousands more are never found.

The List summarises information on where, when and under which circumstances they died. On all death cases further documentation is kept in archive. The data are collected through own research, information received from the 550 network organisations in 48 countries and from local experts, journalists and researchers in the field of migration. Compiled in the ‘List of Deaths’ they add up to an impressive listing and a strong campaign statement: No More Deaths – Time For Change!
