In addition to producing studies and reports, the EMN also produces shorter Informs on migration and asylum issues. Informs can be based on EMN studies or data collected by means of ad-hoc queries, for example.
This inform provides an overview on accompanied children’s right to be heard in international protection procedures in EMN member countries and Norway.
This inform explores displacement and migration related to disasters, climate change and environmental degradation. It aims to complement existing research by providing a broader perspective on how displacement and migration related to disasters, climate change and environmental degradation are being addressed by key national-level initiatives and policies in EMN Member Countries as well as non-EU OECD countries.
The new EMN Inform series is an update on the status of statelessness in EMN member countries and EMN observer countries (Norway and Georgia). Previous updates were published in 2016 and 2020.
