European Union

European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE)

The European Council on Refugees and Exiles was established in 1974 to protect and advance the rights of refugees, asylum seekers, and displaced persons. Its membership consists of 95 non-governmental organizations and 40 European counties.

ECRE's work covers four main activities: legal support and strategic litigation, legal policy and research, advocacy, and communication. ECRE manages the European Database of Asylum Law as part of its legal support program, while the Asylum Information Database is one of its core research activities.

Migration Policy Center

The Migration Policy Centre at the European University Institute is a source of research data, policy information, and scholarly news on the subject of how governments handle international migration, asylum, and mobility. Its three core aims are the advancement of academic research and knowledge, policy engagement and dialog, and advanced training for researchers, policy officials, and others dealing with migration issues.
