RSI launches tool tracking global repatriations of children and adults from northeast Syria
Today, RSI launched its Global Repatriations Tracker, an important new tool that charts the estimated number of children, women and men repatriated from northeast Syria by country and date since 2019.
Since the territorial defeat of the Islamic State (IS), tens of thousands of children, women and men from across the world who were allegedly found in former IS-controlled areas have been held in dire conditions in camps, prisons, and other detention facilities in northeast Syria.

The Tracker aims to increase transparency surrounding global repatriation efforts and assist those working in the field or reporting on these issues. The numbers are drawn from publicly available media sources.
