To encourage exchange and dialogue on migration, asylum and integration, civil society and European Institutions meet every year at the European Migration Forum (EMF). The Forum is co-organised and run by the European Commission - DG HOME, and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).
EMF aims to be a truly inclusive platform – before they are chosen, Forum topics are discussed with civil society organisations. The Forum is an opportunity for civil society to express their views, exchange ideas and best practices, as well as discuss challenges and priorities with decision makers at the national and EU level.
