Purpose of the EMN

The European Migration Network was established on 14 May 2008 under the EU Council Decision establishing the European Migration Network (2008/381/ES) with the objective to provide the Community institutions and Member States with the latest reliable and comparable information on migration and international protection both on the EU and the Member States’ levels. It is composed of the European Commission representatives and the representatives of 28 states plus Norway which is an associated Member State as a subject, i.e. its national contact point. The European Migration Networks cooperates all the time with different EMN partners that participate in the preparation of EMN documents as well as other activities.

The main task of the European Migration Network is to collect, analyse and document different information on migration and asylum as a support for designing the EU and Member States’ policies. EMN provides broader public, EU and other partners with collected information in the form of various publications, such as studies, annual progress reports on migration and international protection policies, statistical reports, bulletins, handbooks, brochures etc. The documents are published on the official website of the European Migration Network and the websites of individual national contact points, including the Slovenian national contact point’s website.

*The European Migration Network endeavours to publish the latest reliable and comparable data and/or information on migrations and asylum. Under the Council Decision EU establishing the European Migration Network (2008/381/ES) the member states or national contact points and the European Commission have the authority to decide on the public availability of data and information therefore all the EMN documents are not publicly accessible, either on the EMN website, or the websites of national contact points.
