EMN Studies and Policy Briefs
Studies examine in detail the selected topics in the area of migration and asylum. For the Slovak Republic they are available in a form of a questionnaire or they are developed into a compact text. The studies are elaborated based on a previously agreed and approved specification that is the same for all EU Member States and Norway.
This study examines the labour market access of applicants for international protection between 2017 to 2022. This involves an up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of legislation, policies and practices in EMN Member Countries on integration of applicants for international protection into the labour market, including the involvement of the key actors in that implementation. It also illustrates challenges and offers a wide range of good practices.
The Overview describes how main migration and asylum policies related to third-country nationals are organised in the Slovak Republic from the institutional perspective as well as from the perspective of their mutual relations. It is based on the information valid as of March 2023 and includes changes caused by war in Ukraine. Overviews are available also for other EU Member States and for EMN observing countries (Norway, Georgia, The Republic of Moldova, Ukraine, Montenegro, Armenia, and Serbia).
This study maps integration policies and measures in the EU Member States, and the extent to which they specifically target migrant women. It provides examples of good practices on integration measures for migrant women at national, regional or local level, and an overview of targeted policies or measures that have been developed to counteract the negative consequences of COVID-19 for the integration of migrant women.
The study identifies similarities, differences, practical challenges, and best practices in the use of detention and alternatives to detention in the Member States within the framework of both international protection and return procedures. Categories of third-country nationals considered include: international protection applicants and third-country nationals who have been issued a return decision. The study pays special attention to the use of detention and alternatives to detention in relation to vulnerable persons such as minors, families with children, pregnant women, and people with special needs.
The study aims to explore the national measures and experiences around detection, identification and protection of third-country national victims of trafficking in human beings between 2015 and 2020. It covers migrants who are asylum applicants, in an irregular situation and in possession of a valid authorisation to stay in a country where they are. The study also maps the cooperation between countries at the European and international level. It identifies the main challenges and good practices in respect of the impact of COVID-19.
The report provides an overview of the progress achieved in 2020 in the implementation of recommendations laid down in the European Commission Communication on the protection of children in migration from 2017. The report is divided into six chapters: identification, registration, reception and asylum procedures, guardianship for unaccompanied minors, alternative (non-institutional) care, access to education (including early childhood education), access to justice, detention and alternatives to detention.
The Overview describes how main asylum and migration policies related to third-country nationals are organised in the Slovak Republic from the institutional perspective as well as from the perspective of their mutual relations. It is based on the information valid as of September 2021. Overviews are available also for other EU Member States, Georgia, Moldova and Norway.
The study provides an overview of existing policies and practices in EU Member States and Norway towards third-country nationals in a prolonged situation of irregular stay. The study focuses on those third-country nationals subject to a return decision but whose return was not enforced or was postponed, and on those without a return decision who are unknown to the authorities. The study looks into national legislative framework and policies towards irregular migrants. It maps approaches to different types of services for this category of migrants and their provision. It describes the ways of ending the long-term irregular stay. Finally, it deals with the challenges and future measures to address the situation of long-term irregular migrants that could be implemented at the EU level. The chapters also reflect on the pandemic situation.
