The European Migration Network (EMN), established by the Council of the European Union in 2008 and co-ordinated by the European Commission, is a network for information collection and exchange on migration and asylum issues, comprised of National Contact Points (EMN NCPs) and national networks of relevant stakeholder organisations. The EMN plays a key role in providing up-to-date, objective, reliable and comparable information on migration and asylum topics to policy makers (at EU and Member State level) and the general public.
The main outlets of the EMN are:
- annual reports on the Member States’ migration and asylum policies;
- studies on asylum and migration issues;
- quick information exchange (ad-hoc queries).
EMN National Contact Point for Estonia (EMN Estonia) is located in Tallinn University at the School of Governance, Law and Society. EMN Estonia is funded by the European Union and the Estonian Ministry of the Interior.
