Data and Trend Analysis (DATA) Refugees and Migrants at the Western Balkans Route Regional Overview, covering period October – December 2018, describes key trends in migrations in the region, detailing information about the number of people on the move, demography (age, sex, country of origin, etc), behavioral patterns, and routes in use – with a focus on children, particularly unaccompanied children.

Key trends showcased in this report:

  1. Mixed migration flows continue on the Balkans route. About 17,000 refugees and migrants are estimated to have arrived to the Balkans countries during the last quarter of 2018 which makes it the second most travelled migration route to Europe.
  2. Transit corridors from Bulgaria, North Macedonia, and Serbia as well as through Albania and Montenegro merge in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where refugees and migrants try to cross the border with Croatia and continue towards Western European countries.
  3. More than 81,000 refugees and migrants are currently present in the Balkans countries.
  4. Children make about one-third of all refugees and migrants transiting through the Balkans with many of them traveling alone
