Published on

PartnersImmigrationVideoSocietyViolent borders

The Balkan route is still a hotbed for many refugees waiting to receive their asylum statuses for months, most of whom are women and children. The second part of the documentary Violent Borders shows the reality for underage refugees in Serbia. According to the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN), while the number of unaccompanied child refugees in the Balkan region is steadily on the rise, they often become victims of various dangers such as human trafficking.

Violent Borders is published in partnership with Cafébabel and Melting Pot Europa in two parts. Follow the project on Facebook or Wordpress.
