Difference Festival - Sink Without Trace: Truths about Migrant Deaths at Sea

For over three decades, unknown numbers of deaths have been occurring amongst migrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea towards Europe. This round table discussion will consider the mis-reporting of these deaths by the media and governments, the widespread use of misleading statistics and the lack of regulation relating to the recovery and identification of migrant’s bodies.

This will be the first in a series of discussions aimed at creating a document of agreed truths on the subject of migrant deaths at sea. Leading experts from NGO’s, media organisations and government bodies will be invited to investigate the myths surrounding the subject and to discuss possible solutions.
