Ad hoc queries

The European Migration Network has an ad hoc request system to gather comparative information on asylum and migration matters of relevance to policy development in Member States.

EMN ad hoc queries are a flexible and timely means of collecting comparative information on specific migration or asylum issues.

How the adhoc query system works

  • EMN National Contact Points (NCPs) introduce a query of relevance to policy development in their Member State
  • Other NCPs have four weeks to respond
  • A compilation of all responses is circulated within eight weeks of the launch date of the query

Compilation of responses

The EMN produces compilations of  the responses to ad-hoc queries, which rapidly assess the perspective of responding Member States and Norway in relation to a specific topic.
