The Migrants' Files [access]
- "Little is known about how many men, women and children actually have lost their lives on their journey to Europe. Believing that policy unsupported by facts cannot be optimal, a consortium of European journalists committed themselves to systematically assembling and analyzing the data on the deaths of Europe’s would-be migrants. The Migrants' Files project is partially funded by the European non-profit organization Journalismfund.eu."
