Knowledge Bite #5 - Types of Reintegration Assistance and Sustainable Reintegration Outcomes
The Sustainable Reintegration Knowledge Bites Series aims to present findings pertaining to sustainable reintegration outcomes emerging from analyses based on Reintegration Sustainability Survey (RSS) data and other monitoring and evaluation (M&E) data centrally available on the IOM’s institutional case management system.
This fifth Knowledge Bite aims to explore returnees’ satisfaction with different types of reintegration assistance as well as whether there is a statistically significant relationship – positive or negative – between reintegration assistance received at different levels and respondents’ individual reintegration outcomes.
One of the key findings of the analysis is that receiving collective reintegration assistance has a positive effect on returnees’ overall reintegration sustainability as well as on their economic reintegration sustainability, that is, whether they have achieved economic self-sufficiency or not. Community reintegration assistance, on the other hand, is associated with less sustainable outcomes in the economic dimension and the returnees’ overall reintegration sustainability.
