Objectives and results
The project’s overall objective is to help reduce labour and sexual exploitation of migrants, including victims of trafficking through support to a humane return and reintegration process emphasizing economic and social empowerment.
As such, the project aims to improve the knowledge base on return and reintegration between Asia and Europe and neighbouring countries so as to enable stakeholders - including key service providers - to enhance the implementation of reintegration services.
The project aims at improving coordination and referral mechanisms between countries of destination and origin in order to provide better return and reintegration services to returnees, including to victims of trafficking.
Any short-term support to victims will be complemented by long-term and sustainable socio economic reintegration assistance.
