Research and Analysis

​Every year each NCP provides an annual report describing the migration and asylum situation in the Member State concerned, including developments in the policy field and statistical data.
Each National Contact Point also drafts comparative research studies following common specifications, covering specific migration and asylum-related issues. The results of each country will then be compiled into a synthesis report which is published by the Commission.
