Migration national contact points gather to keep abreast of latest developments

During the 90th meeting of National Contact Points of the European Migration Network (EMN) in Brussels on 1 December, the Agency presented its current research relevant for the network’s activities.

The aim of the meeting was to update the contact points as well as the European Asylum Support Office, the European Parliament, the Europan Commission and FRA about the status of current and future work. This included the work of the EMN Return Expert Group, particularly on asylum migration and integration and its integrated return management application. FRA also spoke about its research into the long term impact of responses to the 2015 asylum/migration crisis. The contribution was well received and the wish for continuous cooperation with the EMN and FRA was expressed from both sides.
