Every year EMN publishes the so called EMN Annual Report on Migration and Asylum for the previous year in which it presents the progress in policies and the novelties in legislation as well as practice (EU and national) plus the results of public debates taking place in Member States and Norway. As the annex to the report EMN also publishes the annual statistical report, the so called Statistical Report.
The annual report is elaborated based upon national reports the so called National Policy Report, prepared in advance by individual national contact points. Every national report is composed of three documents: Part 1 – report on EU policies’ implementation. Part 2 – report on national policies’ implementation and other international activities (projects, agreements, twinning, etc.) as well as the statistical report. Every document’s structure and methodology are prescribed in advance bit the content of an individual national report reflects the member state’s priority. EU Agencies also participate in the preparation of the annual report (EASO, Frontex, Eurostat) and European Commission.
The main chapters in the report are as follows:
1.) International protection including asylum;
2) Unaccompanied minors and other vulnerable groups
3.) Legal migration and mobility;
5.) Impact on the development of migrations and cooperation with third countries;
6.) Protection of EU external borders;
7.) Illegal migration and return;
8.) Activities in connection with human trafficking.
The last EU annual report on migration and asylum is available under the domain News or on the formal website European Migration Network. On this website there is also the collection of all the published EU annual reports, statistical reports and national reports.
