Abandoned lives: Report on the situation and needs of migrants arriving from the balkan route to Trieste – year 2022
This report was produced by a network of organisations working in Trieste, Italy on the issues of reception, legal protection, and humanitarian assistance to migrants arriving in the city from the Balkan route.
The organisations involved are:
- Comunità di San Martino al Campo ODV
- Consorzio Italiano di Solidarietà (ICS)
- Diaconia Valdese (CSD)
- DONK – Humanitarian Medicine ODV
- International Rescue Committee Italia (IRC)
- Linea d’Ombra ODV
The network started in 2021 and was reinforced during 2022; this allowed the implementation of the constant and daily monitoring of arrivals with a related support and assistance activity managed entirely by the authors of this report with the support and solidarity of civil society.
The purpose of this report is to illustrate the detailed analysis that has been conducted monthly during 2022 in relation to migrant arrivals, their nationalities, family composition and age, as well as in relation to their migration paths, with a special focus on the most vulnerable situations.
The work includes an assessment of the impact that the increase in arrivals has had on the local service system in 2022, and partially on the local dormitory system during the winter of 2022/2023, analysing the main critical issues that have emerged. The report concludes with recommendations to institutions on the interventions that are urgently needed to ensure compliance with existing regulations and protection of basic human rights.
