EPAM - European NGO Platform on Asylum and Migration

EPAM is the meeting-place of European non-governmental organisations and networks seeking to contribute to the development of asylum and migration policy in the European Union. The Platform has been running on a voluntary basis since 1994. Quarterly meetings are co-chaired by the Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME) and UNHCR, while quarterly working groups on asylum and migration are chaired respectively by the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) and the Migration Policy Group (MPG). New applications for membership are discussed and approved in the plenary session of the Platform.

EPAM members are NGOs that are: active on asylum and migration; networked across Europe; mostly based in Brussels.

UNHCR facilitates the coordination of the members.
