On 21 November 2018 the National Contact Point Austria organized an anniversary event to celebrate 10 years of EMN together with companions of the last decade. Among the guests were representatives of the National Steering Committee of the EMN, Austrian ministries, international organizations, nongovernmental organizations and research institutes. They were invited to an afternoon with scientific lectures and discussions as well as a festive reception.
The lecture program:
Council Decision 2008/381/EC has served as the legal basis for the EMN since 2008. Over the past 10 years the EMN has provided up-to-date, comparable and objective information on migration and asylum in the EU, contributing to policy making and public debate. The EMN has produced research on a wide range of topics across all aspects of migration and asylum policy, from labour migration, to integration, family reunification, international protection, trafficking in human beings and return. More information on the work of the EMN can be found in the recently published anniversary report and an anniversary video.
