Unlawful death of refugees and migrants

This report of the Special Rapporteur of the Human Rights Council on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions focuses on the mass casualties of refugees and migrants in the course of their flight. It addresses killings by both State and non-State actors, and denounces a quasi-generalized regime of impunity, worsened by an absence of accurate data on the dead and missing.
