Government to Government Cooperation

Through a range of Gov2Gov initiatives, ERRIN works to empower partner governments and give them more ownership in coordinating local reintegration processes of returning migrants.

Reinforcing capacities of authorities in countries of origin shortens the circuit for provision of post-arrival assistance and reintegration support. It also helps the authorities deal with the challenges related to return and reintegration – contributing to the effectiveness of return and reintegration policies and programmes.

Gov2Gov cooperation focuses on two main objectives:

  • Reinforcing institutional capacities of responsible authorities in the countries of origin in terms of the provision of post-arrival assistance;
  • Supporting the responsible authorities in practical terms with a view to providing direct assistance to returnees.

Currently ERRIN is working with the governments of Ghana and Armenia within the framework of its Gov2Gov activities.
