Migration and Home Affairs

Who we are

European Union (EU) States are committed to increasing cooperation on cross-border issues, such as asylum, migration, border control, organised crime and terrorism. As part of the European Commission, Directorate-General (DG) Migration and Home Affairs prepares EU-level rules in these policy areas and watches over their application. Our DG is also responsible for funding related projects in EU States as well as the projects financed under the Europe for Citizens programme. Led by Ms Monique Pariat, we are approximately 550 staff members working to create an open and safe Europe.

About us
