The EMN produces Studies on topics of relevance to policymakers at national and EU levels to meet both their long-term and short-term information needs. Study Topics are selected from proposals made by individual or groups of EMN NCPs and/or the European Commission. Topics may be proposed for in-depth, strategic studies with long-term relevance, or for shorter, focussed studies, responding to short term information needs. On selection of a Study Topic, each EMN NCP produces a National Report following Common Specifications that are developed to facilitate comparability across countries. A comparative Synthesis Report is then produced bringing together the main findings from the national reports and placing these within an EU perspective.
Recent published EMN – studies, synthesis reports, national reports are available at domain Publications. Database of all published EMN – studies, synthesis report and national reports are available here.
