ERRIN looks into ways to develop tailor-made solutions that meet the needs of most venerable returnees, ensuring that they can come back home safely.

Within the framework of its pilot project, “PROSPECT”, ERRIN explores a new, coordinated approach to support safe return and reintegration of the most vulnerable people to Nigeria – a source, transit, and destination country for persons subjected to trafficking in human beings. Once in Europe, victims of trafficking often express a wish to come back home, but are afraid of potential repercussions and unsure of their future in the country of origin.

ERRIN strives to address these challenges by establishing a more coordinated mechanism for reintegration of vulnerable returnees in Nigeria. This mechanism will be set up by ERRIN partners, Caritas International and Idia Renaissance, in close cooperation with the ICMPD Anti-Trafficking Programme.

In a nutshell, “PROSPECT” aims to strengthen the reintegration of trafficked persons and people vulnerable to trafficking, returning from ERRIN Member States to Nigeria. We are working to secure a safe, enabling environment, which allows vulnerable people to build their futures back home. The project will also facilitate information sharing, boosting the standards of care and support for vulnerable migrants returning to Nigeria.
