Report Launch Event
Fatal Journeys Volume 3:
Improving Data on Missing Migrants

Research from the IOM Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC)
13 September 2017, from 6 to 8 pm
Venue: Frontline Club,
13 Norfolk Place, London W2 1QJ

Since 2014, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has recorded the deaths of more than 22,500 migrants worldwide. This figure is a significant measure of the human toll of unsafe migration, but still fails to capture the true number of people who have died or gone missing on their journey for a better life.

This event will share the key messages of Fatal Journeys Volume 3 – Part 1, the third volume of the global report on migrant fatalities published by IOM. The editors of the report will speak about three sets of issues: (i) what we know (ii) gaps and how to improve data on missing migrants (iii) the role of the media.
