European Neighbourhood Instrument


The Asylum and Migration Fund aims to contribute to an effective management of migration flows in the European Union. This fund aims to draw on the capacity building process developed with the assistance of the European Refugee Fund, the European Fund for the Integration of third-country nationals and the European Return Fund.

The objective of this fund is to strengthen and develop the Common European Asylum System, to support legal migration to the EU in line with the economic and social needs of Member States and promote the effective integration of third-country nationals, including of asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection. It also aims to enhance fair and effective return strategies in the Member States with emphasis on sustainability of return and effective readmission in the countries of origin and to enhance the solidarity and responsibility sharing between the Member States, in particular towards those most affected by migration and asylum flows.

The Funds and Programmes Division is the Managing Authority responsible for these funds.
