Description

Description: The programs of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) have been implemented for four decades, having helped tens of thousands of people return to their country of origin. At the same time, their economic and social reintegration is supported and cooperation and networking between competent bodies of the countries of origin and the host countries is promoted. The decision to return is 100% voluntary and is made at the request of the immigrant. The programs are based on the principles of free choice and correct and timely information.

What is reintegration: According to the IOM, reintegration is the process of smooth reintegration of an individual into a whole or a group, in this case an immigrant in his country. In other words, it is a process that enables the beneficiary to create conditions of sustainability and to participate again in the social, economic, political and cultural life of his country. Beneficiaries of reintegration assistance receive information and advice from specialized staff and cultural ombudsmen, in order to implement individual reintegration plans, based on their needs. The reintegration plans are implemented in cooperation with the IOM offices in the returning countries and benefit the returnees, the local communities and the host countries.
