Welcome to the GR EMN NCP
Wellcome to the Homepage of the GR EMN NCP of European Migration Network of the European Union
The European Migration Network was established in 2003, initially as preparatory action of the European Commission, having as its main goal to provide the European Commission as well as the member states, with objective reliable and updated data on immigration and asylum issues.
With the decision 2008/381/EC, the European Migration Network gets a legal basis in EU level. In this framework Greece participates in the Network actively. The grounds for the establishment of the European Migration Network is to cover the information needs of the Community institutional bodies and the institutional bodies and authorities of the member states as well, in the area of migration and asylum, in order to support European Union to map policy in these sectors.
The Ministry of Interior and Administrative Reform is the Greek National Contact Point in the European Migration Network (art 5, Dec 2008/381/EC). The main role of the GR EMN NCP is to carry out the main tasks of the EMN, as described, each time, in its annual programs.
