Montenegro joins the European Migration Network as an Observer Country

Montenegro joins the European Migration Network as an observer

The European Commission and the Ministry of the Interior of Montenegro have signed Administrative Arrangement to collaborate in the European Migration Network (EMN), thus making Montenegro an Observer Country in the network.

Both sides agreed to exchange up-to-date, objective, reliable and comparable information on the asylum and migration situation in Montenegro and in the EU Member States. The Administrative Arrangement is an important step towards reinforced cooperation and efficient exchange of information in the areas of migration and asylum between the Member States and Montenegro.

The goal of the European Migration Network is to meet the information needs of Union institutions and of Member States’ authorities and institutions on migration and asylum, with a view to supporting policymaking in the European Union in these areas. Montenegro will contribute to EMN’s objectives by attending all EMN meetings and contribute to EMN studies and reports.

The signature took place in the margins of the meeting between Olivier Onidi, Deputy Director-General for Migration and Home Affairs and Mr Filip Adzic, Minister of Interior of Montenegro.
