The European Migration Network (EMN) established by Council Decision 2008/381/EC of 14 May 2008, is an EU co-funded network whose purpose is to provide objective, comparable policy-relevant information and knowledge on emerging issues relating to asylum and migration in Europe. The EMN consists of National Contact Points (NCPs) in the EMN Member (EU Member States except Denmark) and Observer Countries (NO, GE, MD, UA, ME, AM, RS), the European Commission and the EMN Service Provider (ICF).
It responds to information needs through its reports and studies, Ad-Hoc Queries, informs (policy briefs), bulletins and policy factsheets. It normally does not engage in primary research; instead its key strength is to collect, document and make available, in an accessible and comparative manner, statistics and other information held or collected at national and EU level. It further analyses and synthesises this information to improve its comparability and harmonisation at EU level. In this way, the EMN makes a valuable contribution to evidence-based policymaking.
