In line with the European Union (EU) external policy and migration priorities, IOM and the EU have jointly developed the following programmes focusing on migrant protection, dignified voluntary return and sustainable reintegration.
These programmes stem from the respective, broader policy frameworks of IOM and the EU. The EU Strategy on voluntary return and reintegration aims at increasing the number of voluntary returns and at improving the quality of the support provided to the returnees, a key objective under the New Pact on Migration and Asylum. In this way, it improves the overall effectiveness of the EU return system.
For more information regarding the IOM approach on return and reintegration refer to the AVRR section.
