- About us
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 consists of the European Commission, a Steering Board, one service provider and National Contact Points of the EU Member States and 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.
The EMN ensures that its activities are consistent and coordinated with the relevant Community instruments and structures in the area of migration and asylum.
