Ideas on How to Facilitate Departure, Return and Reintegration Assistance

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Sep 27, 2015 | International Organisation on Migration, Swiss Red Cross

Recent major changes in migration flows to Switzerland require urgent adaptation of mechanisms and services in return assistance. In this joint paper, the International Organisation on Migration (IOM) and the Swiss Red Cross (SRC) propose management initiatives, including:

  • Opening up of return assistance programmes to a wider group of people;
  • introducing innovative approaches to return assistance; and
  • strengthening cooperative work in Europe, particularly the European Union.

Future return counselling should be divided into pre- and post-return services. To ensure appropriate and sustainable socioeconomic reintegration for returnees, detailed needs assessment and final determination of the services to be offered should be conducted only after the return in the country of origin.
