Events in the Aegean Sea are observed and documented by numerous organisations and initiatives. The following maps provide an overview of the number of crossings, deaths and pushbacks.
Deaths: The Missing Migrants Project tracks deaths of migrants, including refugees, who died or have gone missing along migration routes including the Aegaen Sea. Missing Migrants is a project of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) of the UN.
Crossings: The operational portal for refugees is provided by UNHCR. The site contains a map and monthly reports on the number of new arrivals on the Greek islands.
Pushbacks: The PUSH-BACK MAP documents push-backs at the borders of the European Union, including the Aegaen Sea. The project emerged from comitted groups and individuals.
