For the first time in the history of the Calais Jungle, we have been able to have accurate statistics on its population and its movement. The Census has found that 3455 people were affected by the last eviction, that 129 unaccompanied children can no longer be accounted for after the demolition, that the youngest child in camp is just 1 month old!
This work has been mentioned in The Guardian, The Independent, The Houses of Parliament and used also by the Refugee Rights Data Project. It is essential for the continuing struggle to identify and help vulnerable individuals, and protecting the rights of unaccompanied children especially.
