This Policy Brief summarises trends in asylum applications and movement of non-EU migrants across the European Economic Area (EEA) over recent years up to September 2015. It outlines the key routes that migrants use to travel to the EEA and the countries where some subsequently claim asylum, along with some of the outcomes of those claims. It concentrates on those EU countries receiving the highest number of asylum applications, namely Germany, Sweden, Italy, France, Hungary, UK, Austria, Netherlands and Belgium. Greece is also included where relevant given its geographical location as a key migration route. Apart from the contributing EMN members, data was also provided by Frontex and Eurostat.
