UNITED has been documenting refugee deaths related to Fortress Europe since 1993. In the period 1993-2020 at least 40.000 refugee deaths can be attributed to the ‘Fatal Policies of Fortress Europe’. The List of Deaths has been used as a tool for advocacy and inspired many street actions, demonstrations and artistic projects, of which you can see a selection below.

The UNITED List of Deaths and other UNITED publications can be freely re-used, translated and redistributed, provided source ( is mentioned and a copy is sent to the UNITED Secretariat.
