Border Monitoring Project Ukraine (BMPU)

Monitoring the implementation of social and human rights of refugees and other vulnerable migrants in the Border region of the European Union and Ukraine.


Various reports and activities on the conditions of refugees and migrants in Ukraine during 2005 – 2008 revealed serious problems in this field. This pointed to the need for systematic monitoring of the situation in the region of the external borders of the European Union (notably Slovakia, Hungary and Romania) with Ukraine. In 2008, representatives from various associations and institutions in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, UK and Ukraine, after some discussion with UNHCR, Helsinki Committee Hungary and others decided to take initiative. A Border Monitoring Project (BMPU) was set up in Western Ukraine with the aim to monitor the implementation of social, human and refugee rights in the border region. Members of this common initative are:  (Munich), Pro Asyl (Frankfurt), no one is illegal (Hanau) and the Centre for Migration, Policy and Society (Oxford).
