Return migration continues to be one of the least considered aspects in migration policy, despite its crucial socioeconomic significance for both countries of origin and destination. Obstacles to address return migration may stem from the lack of analytical tools informing the impact of return on development and about the factors shaping returnees' patterns of reintegration and the need for adequate institutional mechanisms aimed at fostering and supporting the social and professional reintegration of migrants in their country of origin. Policies addressing return migration need to take into account the pre- and post-return conditions faced by migrant workers, the reasons for their emigration and return, the duration of their stay abroad, and all the elements that may affect the capacity for reintegration in their home country. Such policies should consider the employment and investment opportunities for return migrants, whether they are returning temporarily or permanently. The need is for a development-oriented approach that places migrants' skills, rights, aspirations and know-how at the centre of the discussion. Return constitutes a stage in the migration cycle and requires a multidisciplinary rights-based approach and relevant support mechanisms. This online course will provide the advanced knowledge required for a better understanding of the social and professional reintegration of return labour migrants. Participants will share and examine innovative and comparative data on the conditions faced by returnees in their countries of origin, study mechanisms sustaining the reintegration of returnees, and use analytical tools and instruments that will be helpful in supporting their reintegration.
The course is addressed to: - Officials from various public institutions and ministries dealing with labour migration and development - Representatives from workers and employers' organizations - Representatives of NGOs dealing with the protection of migrants' rights and the linkages between migration and development, migrants' associations and representatives of Diasporas - Officials from International development agencies, regional economic communities - Officials from local authorities - Researchers from Universities and research institutes
