As well as via this website and the Information Leaflet plus Newsletters plus Wikipedia entry, activities are undertaken to promote the EMN to policymakers at national and European level, and to inform the wider public about its objectives, current and future activities.
EMN members actively contribute to enhancing the visibility of the EMN at national level, including the organisation of conferences and other events, national network meetings, etc. These events provide a good opportunity to report on the activities undertaken by the EMN and to widen the national networks.
Other efforts launched by EMN NCPs include:
The EMN strives towards the timely publication and strategically advantageous distribution of the EMN's outputs, as well as the EMN information material, at the European, international, and national levels. Not only does this include publication of EMN outputs, but also presentations of the EMN, and its findings, at relevant workshops/seminars/conferences organised by EMN members and by other organisations. Participation serves to promote the EMN and its outputs to a wider audience, emphasising the EMN's role in providing information to support policymakers.
EMN Informs are now routinely produced and in 2012 the intention is to produce EMN Quarterly Reports, summarising latest developments and published statistics in a particular quarter.
The form and thematic approach of the annual EMN Conferences are determined by the EMN Members and in part reflect recent developments and/or the current status of the EMN.
The EMN Conference 2011 took place on Tuesday 25th October 2011 in Warsaw, Poland, under the auspices of the Polish Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Its theme was on "Irregular Migration," particularly within the context of the EMN's study. More details can be found here.
The EMN Conference 2010, took place on Wednesday 29th September 2010 in Brussels and was held under the auspices of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The Conference took stock of the issue of long-term follow-up of migrants' trajectories, across the European Union. Its main objective was to identify good practices in Member States with regard to the availability of longitudinal and socio-economic data on third-country nationals living in the EU and consider how this information could best be used to support the development of migration policy at EU and national levels. More information, including the presentations given, may be found here.
The 2009 Conference consisted of two sessions. The morning session again focussed on the possible complementarity and synergies of the EMN with other EU entities, with presentations on the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), the Mutual Information Mechanism (MIM), ICONet and FRONTEX. The afternoon session was for the presentation of the initial findings of the EMN's Unaccompanied Minors study, as well as that of the Fundamental Rights Agency on Separated, Asylum Seeking Children in EU Member States.
