The Border Violence Monitoring Network (BVMN) is an independent network of NGOs and grassroots associations mainly based in the Balkan region, as well as Greece and Turkey. The network monitors pushbacks and other human rights violations at the external borders of the European Union and advocates for the end to violence against people-on-the-move, freedom of movement, and safe means of passage. BVMN was created in 2016 when several actors became aware of the existence of violent pushbacks of asylum seekers along the so called “Balkan Route” and began to document such cases via a common oral testimony framework which feeds into an online archive. This unique database has become the basis for the wide ranging activities carried out by BVMN today in the field of advocacy, litigation, and public awareness.
