The European Migration Network plays a key role in providing up-to-date, objective, reliable and comparable information on migration and asylum topics in Europe.

The network’s key strength is to collect, document and make available to policymakers, practitioners and other interested parties information and statistics held or collected at national and EU level.

National Contact Points (EMN NCPs) are established in all Member States (except Denmark) and Norway. Each EMN NCPs is appointed by the relevant national government. EMN NCPs are located within Ministries of Interior and of Justice, specialised government agencies dealing with migration, research Institutes, non-governmental organisations or national offices of international organisations.

The EMN responds proactively to the immediate information needs of EU and national-level policymakers with the following products:

  • Annual Reports on Immigration and Asylum
  • Studies on relevant topics
  • Informs
  • Country Factsheets
  • Ad-Hoc Queries
  • Bulletin
  • Asylum and Migration Glossary

Annual conferences and theme-specific events
