Regular overviews of migration-related fundamental rights concerns

In view of the increasing numbers of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants entering the EU, the European Commission asked FRA to collect data about the fundamental rights situation of people arriving in those Member States that have been particularly affected by large migration movements. The countries covered are Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia and Sweden.

FRA published weekly overviews encompassing a period of eight weeks from September to November 2015. 

From January 2016 FRA is publishing monthly updates that cover a variety of different issues, including:

  • initial registration and asylum applications, with particular attention to the situation of vulnerable people
  • criminal proceedings initiated for offences related to irregular border crossing
  • child protection
  • reception conditions for new arrivals, focusing on the situation of children and other vulnerable people
  • access to healthcare
  • public response such as rallies of support, humanitarian assistance or voluntary work
  • racist incidents such as demonstrations, online hate speech or hate crime.

Monthly overviews from January 2016:
