The project targets directly Morocco, and Tunisia and indirectly Algeria and Mauritania. Its overall objective is to support the social and professional reintegration of return migrants by strengthening the capacity of policy level stakeholders in North Africa to design and facilitate evidence-based return migration policies.
More specifically, the project will:
raise awareness of the need to develop adequate mechanisms sustaining the reintegration of returnees while redefining current policy priorities applied to return;
contribute to integrating return migration issues in national and regional development strategies;
produce and disseminate information and innovative datasets on North African returnees,
facilitate a constructive dialogue among European and North African stakeholders;
provide added value to temporary labour migration schemes;
capitalise on returnees’ know-how and human and financial capital acquired abroad;
generate lasting and self-sustaining channels of discussion between migration stakeholders, at national and international levels.
provide analytical tools allowing the adoption of policies supporting returnees’ reintegration;
