Migration News Sheet


The Migration News Sheet is a European monthly covering all major European developments in the fields of immigration and asylum policies, asylum-seekers, controlled migration, irregular and illegal immigration, racism and discrimination, and issues arising out of the process of integrating ethnic minorities.


The Migration News Sheet is also available online at www.migrationnewssheet.eu where members can view the archive online. 

European and international coverage

The MNS covers high impact developments in European, international and inter-governmental organisations. The coverage prioritises European events and developments as opposed to merely those of a national character. Of primary focus are decisions and initiatives taken by the member states of the European Union, the Council of Europe and various other intergovernmental bodies, such as the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Organisation for Migration. The News Sheet also chronicles important legal developments at the level of the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. Bearing in mind the frequently-declared intention to harmonise immigration and asylum policies in Europe,the News Sheet highlights specific administrative court rulings, which officials in many European states regularly consult for guidance in the elaboration and implementation of their own immigration and asylum legislation.

Hard facts for a varied audience

The News Sheet provides up-to-date information on developments in immigration and assylum policies and on migration and integration issues, and references to relevant documents of various intergovernmental institutions which, though not often confidential, are nevertheless quite difficult and time-consuming to obtain. The rather unique character of its information and sources, its ever-conscious recognition of the need to limit coverage to facts, and its commitment to objective reporting have generated interest from a wide and varied group of News Sheet subscribers, including persons of immigrant origin, lawyers, researchers, European judges, ministers and civil servants who deal with immigrants and asylum seekers, and their counterparts in Australia, Canada and the United States.

The contents of the Migration News Sheet are organised under the following headings:

  • Migration Policies
  • Irregular Migration
  • Asylum/Refugees
  • Racism/Discrimination
  • Integration/Diversity
Articles under each heading appear in the following order:

  • Institutions of the European Union
