Mapping European Migrant Deaths
The Migrants Files has mapped over 23,000 migrants who have died on their way to Europe since the year 2000. Partially funded by the European non-profit organization, Journalismfund.eu, the Migrant Files has been compiling data on the deaths of Europe’s would-be migrants from a number of different sources.
The map shows the locations of where migrants have died either in their attempts to enter Europe or while seeking refuge in Europe. The map highlights the dangers for African migrants off the coasts of Morocco and Tunisia and also a large number of deaths of migrants off the coast of Turkey.
