A key aspect of the GIZ/CIM ‘Migration for Development’ programme is the Returning Experts (RE) component, which targets diaspora professionals in Germany who are interested in returning to their country of origin and helps identify employment opportunities and finance development-related occupations in the country of origin. The REs’ objective is to contribute to knowledge transfer and creation, with the development of the country of origin itself as the ultimate goal. This report examines the knowledge transfer resulting from the RE placements and makes recommendations for improvements of the support offered to CIM for RE’s.
