A European Dialogue on the return and reintegration of migrants, 2018
Published at : 08 Jan 2021
Not everyone who has arrived in Europe in the last few years can or wants to stay. Many European countries support the voluntary return and reintegration of migrants. The European Commission and different Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are also active in this area. In order to foster good cooperation the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community (BMI) and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) organized a European dialogue on the 18 October 2018 in Berlin. This video shows a short roundup of this conference – including the keynote speech by Kathleen Newland (Migration Policy Institute, Washington). Over 90 participants from 15 European countries and countries of origin took part: practitioners, policy makers and international academics. The European Dialogue offered them a platform for exchange. The overarching question was: How can coordination within one country and amongst EU countries improve the quality of return programs?
