The EMN Bulletin provides policymakers and other practitioners with updates on recent migration and international protection policy developments at EU and national level. The 32nd Edition provides information from July 2020 to September 2020, including the (latest) relevant published statistics.


The e-Conference “Challenges of Irregular Migration on the Eastern Mediterranean – Western Balkan Route in the time of COVID-19” took place as a webinar, and aimed to share knowledge, experience and views among representatives from Member States, EU institutions and international organisations on future challenges and solutions for dealing with irregular migration into the EU in the time of COVID-19. The emphasis was on the Eastern Mediterranean – Western Balkan Route but also on the link to the challenges of irregular migration and migrant smuggling in the EU in general.
