The European Migration Network (EMN) is a network established by the European Council (2008) with the aim to provide up-to-date, objective, reliable and comparable information on migration and asylum to the EU institutions, Member States’ authorities and citizens with a view to support policymaking in the European Union. Under the coordination of the Directorate-General Home Affairs of the European Commission, the EMN is composed of National Contact Points located in all Member States and Norway. As of 1 April 2014 the EMN National Contact Point designated by Italy is constituted by the Ministry of the Interior – Department for Civil Liberties and Immigration – Central Directorate for Immigration and Asylum Policies (coordinator) and by the National Research Council (CNR), Department of Human and Social Sciences, Cultural Heritage (DSU). Researchers and technologists of ISGI and other CNR Institutes (namely, ILIESI, IRPPS, ISSIRFA and ITTIG) collaborate with the DSU to carry out the activities relating to the EMN.
