Chiang Mai city is Thailand’s second largest after Bangkok and constitutes the northern region’s main economic and transit hub. In its Pa Tan district near the city center, migrant and Thai workers gather in a specific soi (alley) to wait for potential employers to drive by and offer them freelance work. Once an agreement is made, workers are transported to destinations throughout Thailand’s north to complete mainly agricultural or construction work before being dropped back off in Chiang Mai city. To gain a better understanding of the profiles of freelance workers and the conditions of their work, IOM Thailand initiated a survey exercise at this soi in Chiang Mai city, interviewing those waiting for employers regarding their employment choices, wages, work accommodations, and challenges. Data was collected in October 2023 among 179 respondents.

In October 2023, 22,709 migratory movements were observed at flow monitoring points (FMP) in Djibouti, with a daily average of 733 migratory movements. Migration flows observed across all FMPs increased by 31% in October compared to September 2023, during which 17,292 movements were recorded.
Of these 22,709 movements, 4,875 (21%) were observed in the Obock region where migrants cross the Gulf of Aden towards the Arabian Peninsula. Migration flows to the FMP of Obock increased by 32% compared to September 2023. This increase could be due to a reduction in border controls with Ethiopia combined with false rumors of the resumption of boat departures from the coasts of Obock where migrants are used to crossing the Gulf of Aden to reach the Arabian Peninsula.
Between January and October 2023, arrivals from Ethiopia (101,585) saw a significant increase of 24% compared to the same period of the previous year (81,889). Migratory movements were: towards the Arabian Peninsula (48%), incoming (41%), transiting within Djibouti (7%), transiting to Ethiopia (4%), and outgoing (1% ). Spontaneous returns from Yemen increased by 5%, from 559 in September to 588 in October, including 20 women (3%).

Válka na Ukrajině, která začala 24. února 2022, vyvolala bezprecedentní humanitární krizi a způsobila rozsáhlé vysídlení jak na Ukrajině, tak v sousedních zemích. K 25. září bylo podle vnitrostátních orgánů v Česku zaregistrováno 371 415 uprchlíků z Ukrajiny, včetně TCN, kteří požádali o dočasnou ochranu.
Tato zpráva vychází z šetření, které IOM Czechia v rámci Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) realizuje od poloviny června 2022. Šetření se zaměřilo na vzorce vysídlení, potřeby a záměry vysídlených osob z Ukrajiny v Česku.
Představuje analýzu založenou na 3 681 dotazníkových šetřeních, které byly provedeny mezi 2. lednem a 30. červnem 2023, s individuálními respondenty, ve všech 13 krajích v České republice a v Praze. Zpráva zahrnuje také informace z kvalitativních komentářů, které respondenti v rámci tohoto šetření poskytli spolu s odpověďmi na uzavřené otázky. Souběžně s dotazníkovým šetřením provedli tazatelé v Plzeňském a Karlovarském kraji také 50 doplňujících (tematických) kvalitativních rozhovorů. Informace uváděné v této zprávě jsou doplněny o zjištění z jiných relevantních výzkumů.
Výběr vzorku pro dotazníkové šetření byl účelový se snahou získat heterogenní vzorek, podobně jako výběr vzorku pro následné kvalitativní tematické rozhovory. Zde byla snaha získat co nejširší spektrum respondentů – od těch, kteří pracují a mají děti, přes nepracující, pracující a bezdětné, až po důchodce či osoby se zdravotním omezením.

Starting on 24 February 2022, the war in Ukraine triggered an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and generated large scale displacement both within Ukraine and in neighboring countries. As of 25 September, 371,415 refugees from Ukraine including TCNs, registered for temporary protection in Czechia according to national authorities.
This report is based on a survey that IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) implemented in mid-June 2022. The survey focused on the displacement patterns, needs, and intentions of displaced persons from Ukraine in Czechia.
It presents an analysis based on 3,681 surveys that were conducted between 2 January and 30 June 2023 among individuals in all 13 regions (kraj) in Czechia and in Prague. The report also includes information from qualitative comments provided by respondents alongside their replies to the closed–ended survey questions. Alongside surveys, enumerators in Pilsen and Karlovy Vary regions conducted 50 qualitative interviews. The information presented in this report is also compared to findings from other relevant studies.
The data presented in this document are representative of the individuals surveyed in the covered locations and during the indicated timeframe.

To foster the growing culture of evidence-based decision-making across the Ukraine response, IOM implements a broad Data and Analytics (D&A) programme in Ukraine, based on three pillars: Data Generation, Data Coordination, and Evidence-Based Governance. The Data and Analytics Programme Overview presents the scope and focus of IOM Ukraine’s Data and Analytics programme for the period 2023-2024. It details the assessments conducted by D&A, describes the ongoing efforts undergone by each Pillar, and shares the key achievements reached by D&A to support the collection, analysis, dissemination and use of a strong evidence base in strategic and operational decision-making in the context of the Ukraine humanitarian response.
The Horn of Africa and Yemen is one of the busiest and riskiest migration corridors in the world travelled by hundreds of thousands of migrants, the majority of whom travel in an irregular manner, often relying on smugglers to facilitate movement along the Eastern Route. This regional report provides monthly updates on the complex migratory dynamics through Djibouti, Somalia, Yemen and Ethiopia based on diverse data sources and consultations with key informants in the four countries. Moreover, it provides information on the main protection concerns for migrants along the journey, information on the spillover effects of the conflict in the Sudan observed at the border with Ethiopia, a specific focus on children and information on the returns from Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia, Somalia and Yemen.
