O Que É ?
The Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration is an indispensable part of a comprehensive approach to migration management. It aims to promote safe and dignified return and sustainable reintegration for migrants who are unable or unwilling to remain in the host country and wish to voluntarily return to their countries of origin.
Regarding reintegration in the country of origin, IOM’s combined approach defines sustainable reintegration as follows: when returnees reach levels of economic self-sufficiency, social stability within their communities, and psychosocial well-being that allow them to cope with (re)migration drivers.
When sustainable reintegration is achieved, returnees are able to make further migration decisions a matter of choice, rather than necessity.
The project Joint Complementary Mechanism for Sustainable Reintegration in
Brazil (SURE) reinforces and complements existing Assisted Voluntary Return and
Reintegration programs implemented by IOM in Portugal, Belgium and Ireland.
The project aims to engage relevant local actors – government, non-government, private, and others – in the provision of long-term support in accordance with returnee’s needs in the three main states of return (Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Goiás).
IOM has a long history of providing support to migrants who wish to voluntarily return to their countries of origin.
