EMV:n uutiskirje joulukuu 2010


Ohessa tietoa Euroopan muuttoliikeverkoston joulukuun uutuuksista ja päivityksistä.


Joulukuussa saapuneet Ad hoc -kyselyiden yhteenvedot




  • EE: Interpretation of a Judgement of the European Court in the Case C-43/93
  • AT: Migration Partnerships

    Uutuutena emn.fi-verkkosivuille on lisätty tapahtumakalenteri


    Etusivun oikeassa laidassa sijaitseva kalenteri mahdollistaa paremmin erilaisten tapahtumien ilmoittamisen. Tarkoituksena on myös että kansallisen verkoston jäsenet voivat lähettää tietoa omista tapahtumistaan, joita he haluavat mainostaa. Ajankohtaista-palsta säilyy myös nykyisenkaltaisena ja pyydämme siksi kansallisen verkoston jäseniä pyydetään mainitsemaan kumpaan kohtaan he haluavat uutisensa sijoittaa, jos haluavat mainostaa jotain. Lähtökohtaisesti ajattelimme että esim. seminaarit ja muut tapahtumat merkitään tapahtumakalenteriin ja  uutiset tai esim. uudet julkaisut tulisivat ajankohtaista-palstalle. Kuten tähänkin asti, tietoa mainostettavista tapahtumista tai julkaisuista voi lähettää osoitteeseen: emn@migri.fi
