Succinct information leaflets produced by the European Commission on the basis of EMN studies, reports or ad-hoc queries. They provide key findings and statistics on a specific topic. The informs can be found not only in this category but also in related studies and reports.

This inform EMN summarizes the key findings of the EMN Synthesis report on the response of the EU member states to the unprecedented migratory movements to EU Member States and Norway between 2014 and 2016. The Synthesis report provides an overview of the changes to national strategies, approaches and measures and examines the changes made in the processing of applications for international protection; reception services; registration procedures; asylum procedures (including rights afforded to applicants) and the content/legal consequences of the protection granted; border control and law enforcement; integration measures; plus other areas impacted by these policies. It draws out key challenges, good practices and lessons learnt during this period. Finally, the study shows the extent to which the (Member) States included in this study are operationally and organisationally prepared for potentially similar situations in the future.
