WB Q2 2016


Key findings:

  • Significant decrease in detections of non-regional transiting migrants after the closure of the transit corridor in March 2016
  • Small but constant number of non-regional migrants still manage to find their way through the region
  • The increased difficulty of transiting the Western Balkans region and the enhanced border security measures in the Aegean Sea keep the Eastern Mediterranean flow at low levels
  • Regional flow remains low, mainly contained to the southern part of the region
