About us

National Contact Points

National Contact Points (EMN NCPs) are appointed in each Member State. EMN NCPs, which have been designated by their Member State government, consist primarily of ministries of interior and of justice, research institutes, non-governmental organisations and national offices of international organisations.

The European Migration Network currently consists of 28 National Contact Points (NCPs), of which 27 are EU Member States (with the exception of Denmark who has observer status) plus Norway who has a working arrangement with the European Commission.
