Since 2015, migrants and refugees have been fleeing the Middle East and North Africa to Europe due to hostilities, and acute economic and humanitarian crises in these regions. The majority of undocumented migrants come to the European Union by sea, arriving in the Mediterranean nations, such as Italy, or crossing through other countries, including Slovenia.
