Asylum and Migration Glossary 6.0

Asylum and Migration Glossary 6.0 - a tool for better comparability produced by the European Migration Network (May 2018)

The EMN Glossary – as one of the key products of the EMN - improves comparability by enabling a common understanding and use of terms and definitions relating to asylum and migration. The Glossary draws on a variety of sources, but primarily on the legislation of the EU asylum and immigration acquis, and makes terms available in the majority of EU Member State languages.

The Glossary is intended to serve as a useful European reference document for EMN National Contact Points (NCPs) and their national network members, policy-makers and other practitioners in the Member States, as well as EU institutions, in order to facilitate the exchange of information. It provides common terminology for the concepts included and thereby facilitates a precise discourse on asylum and migration matters, including in the media
