Praxis Published Protection Monitoring Report on Migration for November 2017

In November, the number of refugees/migrants met and interviewed by Praxis’ mobile team in Belgrade every day did not exceed 200 on a daily basis. This number includes 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 an unsuccessful attempt to cross the Croatian, Hungarian or Romanian border. Praxis provided assistance to a total of 1,620 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 865 newly arrived refugees and migrants (601 adults – 494 males and 107 females, and 264 children – 203 boys and 61 girls, including 125 unaccompanied and separated children, all male) in Belgrade with relevant information, which is a smaller number than in the previous month when we informed 1274 newly arrived refugees/migrants. During this month, Praxis has visited Obrenovac in order to provide as many refugees/migrants as possible with relevant and timely information.

Out of the total of 865 newly arrived refugees/ migrants, 199 persons or 23% of them were from Pakistan. Since the lifting of visa requirements for Iranian citizens, the number of people from Iran who expressed their intention to seek asylum in Serbia has increased. In November, 196 refugees/migrants (22.7% of the total number) came from Iran. One hundred and eighty-eight (188) refugees and migrants came from Iraq (21.7%). One hundred and fifty-eight (158) or 18.3% of all newly arrived refugees/migrants were from Afghanistan. A total of fifty-five (55) newly arrived refugees/migrants were from Syria, which accounts for 6.4% of the total number. Six (6) newly arrived refugees/migrants came from Algeria (0.7%). A total of 63 refugees/migrants (7.3%) came from other countries: Bangladesh, Somalia, Libya, India, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Azerbaijan, Macedonia, Guinea, China and Cameroon.

Only the families waiting for registration or transport to one of the asylum or reception centres they had been referred too still had the option of spending the night in Miksalište. The adult single men stayed outdoors overnight, in the parks, at the railway station, in the abandoned buildings near the bus and railway stations. As regards food, clothing and medical assistance: Info Park provided meals for newly arrived refugees/migrants; the MSF clinic worked; there was still no organised distribution of clothing outside of the Asylum Centre Krnjača and the Reception Centre Obrenovac.
