EMN collects, analyses and publishes factual information on migration and asylum issues.
Norway participates in the EMN via a Working Arrangement between the European Commission and the Norwegian Ministry of Justice and Public Security. The EMN National Contact Point for Norway (NO EMN NCP) was established on 1st January 2011 and consists of experts from the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration and the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.
Norway’s participation in the EMN, as a non-EU Member State, follows from the objectives set out in the Report No. 9 (2009-2010) to the Storting:
Norway’s refugee and migration policy in a European perspective: “Participating in the EMN will give us access to a broad range of information about developments in European refugee and migration policy. It will also improve the Norwegian authorities’ ability to ensure that Norway’s policy and practice are harmonised with other European countries and to learn from other countries’ experience.”firstname.lastname@example.org
