ERRIN explores networks of referrals to link its reintegration efforts with existing development initiatives.

ERRIN is working on linking its reintegration services with existing development programmes. This way, returning migrants can count on more support, whilst their reintegration journey is made more sustainable.

ERRIN will set up a referral mechanism – a network of partners – working at the intersection of reintegration assistance, provided by our field partners, and existing development programmes. In short, we are seeking development aid actors that could provide ERRIN beneficiaries with further support after they have received their reintegration assistance. 

The precise workflows related to the referral process will be defined jointly by all actors involved. Following individual cases and stories of return, the pilot activities will test how to best develop such joint cooperation. This will allow us to identify best practices and possible limitations, and gather elements to lay ground for a future multi-stakeholder project linking reintegration to development. The outcomes of the pilot initiatives, implemented in different contexts of Nigeria and Bangladesh, will be integrated into a set of recommendations on strengthening practical and operational links between reintegration programmes and wider development aid.
