Six months after the Calais ‘Jungle’ camp demolition, Refugee Rights Data Project has published a new report n 24th April 2017, based on interviews with more than 200 refugees sleeping rough in the Calais area.
Since the demolition of the so-called ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais, hundreds of refugees and displaced people continue to reside in the region. The new report Six Months On: Filling information gaps relating children and young adults in Northern France following the demolition of the Calais camp is the latest investigating the issues that both adults and minors face, including police and citizen violence, and an absence of legal advice.
It is based on interviews with 213 individuals – some 43% of the displaced people thought to be living in the region, including 42% of estimated minors. This makes it the largest study of its kind in Calais and the surrounding area since the camp’s demolition.
The research was carried out in early April with the kind support of Help Refugees, Refugee Youth Service and other key actors on the ground.
