Glossary of terms

The EMN has elaborated a migration and asylum glossary. The purpose of this glossary is to contribute to a better understanding and use of the migration-related terms fostering a common understanding.

The glossary is based on various sources, mainly in those listed in the EU acquis on asylum and migration, and it is available in most of the Member States’ languages.

The glossary is available in the mobile app and in the online versions.
