Dignified Return

Future Perspectives

Welcome to the ERRIN website! The European Return and Reintegration Network (ERRIN) is a network of 15 European partner countries, established to facilitate cooperation between migration authorities. Ensuring that migrants can return to their home countries in a dignified and humane manner is an important part of EU efforts to manage migration.

Through better collaboration, we explore joint solutions to help improve the efficiency of the return process and the quality of reintegration support. Most importantly, we strive to improve future perspectives for returnees to start a new life back home.

Where we work

ERRIN is working with four local organisations, the French Office for Immigration and Integration (OFII) and the network of European Reintegration Support Organisations (ERSO), which offer comprehensive assistance for returning migrants. Following the initial aid provided right upon arrival, the reintegration support may involve support for housing, medical treatment, vocational training and educational needs, or setting up a business. We are currently operating in 34 countries, offering a wide range of services for returnees and implementing innovative projects that aim at improving joint European reintegration practices.
