Refugee Rights Europe conducted research in Paris between 27 and 30 January 2018. The study is based on a survey of 283 individuals in their native languages, or approximately 10% of the estimated 2950 refugees and displaced people thought to be sleeping rough in the streets of Paris at the time of the study. Among those interviewed were 58 children – or 5.8% of the research sample.This is one of the largest independent studies to be conducted with refugees and displaced people on the streets of Paris.

Effective and long-lasting policy action is urgently needed to secure the human rights of refugees and displaced people on French soil.
