Background and Context

The Reintegration & Rehabilitation of Involuntary Returned Migrants Project will complement and build on existing initiatives at the national and local levels to strengthen systems to address issues associated with the treatment of involuntary returned migrants in the country and especially in urban centres. This project seeks to strengthen the policy, legislative and institutional framework that guides the management and treatment of IRMs to the island. This includes finalizing the National Deportation Policy and developing a strategy and standard operating procedures (SOPs) for managing the rehabilitation and reintegration of involuntary returned migrants.

The project will also contribute to increasing the capacity of entities including non-government organizations to provide more efficient and effective services to IRMs and strengthen the integration of migration issues in the local sustainable development planning process now being undertaken by local authorities. It is expected that the project will result in the creation of a national coordination mechanism through the building of partnerships to address issues concerning involuntary returned migrants, aligned to the country’s policy priorities on migration.

The project’s key expected outcomes are:

  • Improved policy and legislative framework governing issues related to Involuntary Returned Migrants (IRMs)
  • Enhanced access to services for IRMs
  • Enhanced capacity of local authorities, to mainstream migration in planning and service provisions

The overall goal of this project is to have an improved coordinating system for the rehabilitation and reintegration of involuntary returned migrants.
