European Migration Network
The European Migration Network (EMN) is a Europe-wide network consisting of National Contact Points (NCPs), providing information on migration and asylum.
The EMN was set up in 2003 by the European Commission on behalf of the European Council in order to satisfy the need of a regular exchange of reliable information on migration and asylum related issues on a European level.
The Council Decision 2008/381/EC from 2008 forms the legal basis for the EMN.
The network currently consists of 27 National Contact Points (NCPs), of which 26 are located in EU Member States (except Denmark that has observer status) plus Norway.
The aim of the EMN is to provide the European and national institutions and agencies as well as the general public with up to date, objective, comparable data and information concerning migration and asylum related issues In order to objectify the current discourse on migration and to support policy decision processes within the European Union.
Please see the EMN website for details on EMN's activities.
