FLOW MONITORING SURVEYS: BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA 2019
DTM FLOW MONITORING SURVEYS IN EUROPE
The flow monitoring surveys (FMS) are part of the IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) activities in the Mediterranean that started in October 2015 and are conducted within the framework of IOM’s research on populations on the move through the Mediterranean and Western Balkan Routes to Europe. The collected surveys are regularly analysed and provide information on profiles of migrant and refugees, transit routes and vulnerabilities. All analyses together with the latest information on arrivals to Europe can be accessed via DTM´s Flow Monitoring Europe Geoportal.
The survey gathers information on profiles of migrants and refugees, including age, sex, areas of origin, levels of education, as well as employment status before migration, key transit points on their route, the cost of the journey, vulnerabilities, reasons for moving and intentions. The revised questionnaire form, used for the surveys in 2019, includes additional questions concerning the expectations of migrants and refugees of the host government/network of co-nationals in the intended destination country, assistance provided (type and by whom was it provided) and challenges experienced during the journey, as well as child/specific indicators. Information about the questionnaire, sampling and survey implementation can be found in the Methodology section.
