On 16 January 2015, IOM hosted a roundtable event to the launch report Comparative Research on Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration. Prof. Khalid Koser and I had been working on this project for the previous year, which looked at three primary objectives of:
1) Understanding the decision to return
2) Developing a method to define and measure sustainable return
3) Examining the factors that determine sustainable return
Further event details and the report are available here.
