4Mi snapshot: Protection risks along the journey to Khartoum

North Africa

Data and research on mixed migration in Sudan are scarce, in particular regarding the protection landscape for refugees and migrants. A number of reports have highlighted risks of torture, trafficking and extortion as well as violence, deprivation of documents, and detention. Drawing upon data from a 4Mi pilot in Khartoum state, this snapshot seeks to examine the main risks along mixed migration routes to and through the country’s capital to better understand refugee and migrant vulnerability and inform programming and policy. This snapshot is based on data collected through a 4Mi pilot in Sudan with 65 refugees and migrants surveyed from May 30 – July 27, 2020 in Khartoum state.
