EMN Glossary


The individual publications and information are available in the information exchange system with the most important metadata, key words and a brief abstract in English and can be specifically called up using a search engine.

In addition to the free text search, the most important entry here is search via the key words.

The basis for this is the EMN Thesaurus with an extensive glossary. Each term contains a definition stating the corresponding source. In principle the definitions come from the corresponding EU directives. Some are included from internationally-renowned thesauri (such as UNHCR, IOM or UNESCO).

Where necessary, the terms also contain references to different definitions and applications in individual Member States. The EMN Thesaurus will also contain translations of each term into the individual languages of the Member States and should contribute to the development of a standard linguistic usage in the field of migration and asylum in the EU.
