Welcome to the EL EMN NCP

Wellcome to the Homepage of the European Migration Network National Contact Point for Greece (EL EMN NCP) 

europeThe 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, comparable 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 EU and EU member states institutions and authorities, in the area of migration and asylum, in order to support European Union to map policy in these sectors.

The General Secretariat for Migration Policy, Ministry for Migration Policy is the Greek National Contact Point in the European Migration Network (art 5, Dec 2008/381/EC). The main role of the EL EMN NCP is to carry out the main tasks of the EMN, as described, each time, in its annual work programs.
