About EMN Norway

Norway has been a member of EMN since 2011. 

The national Norwegian contact point consists of experts from the Ministry of Justice and Public Security and UDI.

EMN Norway aims to ensure the flow of objective and reliable information about legislation, policy and practice regulating immigration and asylum, in Norway and EU.

EMN Norway cooperates with experts from governmental and non-governmental organisations, as well as researchers and individuals in the field of migration and asylum.

EMN Norway commissions papers and reports from Norwegian researchers with an objective to generate insight and contribute to the discussions on future policies and good practices in the field of migration. These papers and reports address a wide audience, including policymakers, academics, media and civil society. EMN also contributes to the dissemination of Norwegian research to European countries through EMN channels.

Return Expert Group

The Return Expert Group (REG) functions as a platform for practical cooperation and the sharing of good practice and expertise on return. UDI participates regularly in REG meetings along with the National Police Immigration Service (PU).

See the EMN main website for more information about how the REG aims to facilitate information sharing and exchange ideas on best practices. (external website)
