Every child's birth right: inequalities and trends in birth registration is a new report, published by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).

Birth registration is a critical first step towards protecting children throughout their lives. Nearly 230 million children under the age of five in the world have not had their births registered.

The report presents latest available data and estimates on birth registration in 161 countries. It highlights global and regional trends and examines inequities in prevalence according to social, economic, demographic and other characteristics. It describes programmatic and advocacy efforts undertaken by UNICEF and its partners.

Migrant Files has mapped over 23,000 migrants who have died on their way to Europe since the year 2000.

The site was launched in August 2013 by a group of European journalists who joined forces to accurately calculate and report the deaths of emigrants seeking refuge in Europe. This pan-European consortium of journalists is partially funded by the European non-profit organization Journalismfund.eu.
