Annual Report on Migration and Asylum 2017 (EMN)

Today, EMN published its Annual Report on Migration and Asylum 2017. The report provides an overview of major developments in migration and asylum in the EU in 2017. 

This annual report of the European Migration Network (EMN) provides an insight into the most significant political and legislative developments in the area of migration and asylum over the course of 2017 in the EU member states and Norway. It includes relevant statistics. The report also includes statistics and provides information on the most important debates at the political level and/or within wider society, as well as on the implementation of EU legislation.

More specifically, the reports focus on the following subjects:

  • Legal migration and mobility
  • International protection
  • Unaccompanied minors and other vulnerable groups
  • Countering trafficking in human beings
  • Migration and development
  • Irregular migration including smuggling
  • Return

The report is available in English and is based on the contributions of EMN national contact points in 24 EU Member States and Norway.  

The Belgian report will become available on this website in the coming weeks. All other national reports will become available here.

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of EMN in 2018, the network also published a special Anniversary Report, taking stock of key trends in asylum and migration over the past 10 years.  The information base for this analysis is drawn from 10 successive EMN Annual Reports on Asylum and Migration and Status Reports, EMN Studies and ad-hoc queries collecting information on a wide range of asylum and migration topics, EMN Informs, briefing papers and other documents developed by the EMN during the 10 year period (2008-2018).
