A public webinar on “New research on sustainable reintegration outcomes: Forced returns, voluntary returns and gender” -organized by the EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub (KMH)- presented the newly launched study on Comparative Reintegration Outcomes between Forced and Voluntary Return and Through a Gender Perspective.

Coordinated by the KMH with the financial support of the European Union (EU) and conducted by the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance of Maastricht University, the study presents key findings of two combined research projects aimed at highlighting the differences in reintegration outcomes among returnees.

The first study examines the impact of whether or not the return was voluntary and its consequences on the economic, social and psychosocial dimension of reintegration. A similar approach was adopted in the second study aimed at examining sex-based differences in reintegration outcomes and at better understanding gender-sensitive reintegration programming.

During the event, the study's background, methodology and findings from the field work conducted in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, El Salvador, the Gambia, Nigeria and Somalia were presented and shared through interventions from the EU, IOM and Maastricht University.
