2nd EPLO study on Migration in Greece published at the EMN/EC website

Τhe European Commission Directorate-General for Migration has published on its website a European Migration Network (EMN) Study prepared by the EPLO on "The changing influx of asylum seekers in 2014-2016: Member State responses" in the case of Greece.

EMN studies provide a comparative analysis of topics of immediate interest to policymakers and other stakeholders related to migration and asylum in the EU. Policy relevant study topics are selected from proposals made by individual or groups of EMN NCPs and/ or the European Commission. The selection is based on their relevance to current policy priorities in the Member States and Norway and to the work of the European Commission and its agencies. The Steering Board reviews and formally approves the selection of topics within the context of the annual EMN Work Programme.

EMN collects, analyses and publishes factual information on migration and asylum issues. This is the 3rd Focussed Study (FS) for 2017.

The Project is co-funded by the European Union and the Ministry for Migration Policy of the Hellenic Republic under the European Migration Network.
