18 February 2021


On 9 February 2021, the SUPREME* project organised a webinar for the stakeholders of the Turkish National Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration Programme on Essential Elements of Reintegration Assistance in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The webinar, entitled “Essential Elements of Reintegration Assistance in Afghanistan and Pakistan”, was attended by the representatives of the Turkish Stakeholders of the National Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration Programme (N-AVRR), the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM), the Turkish Red Crescent (TURK KIZILAY), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA).

The webinar took place in two sessions. The first session provided an overview of Turkey’s N-AVRR system followed by the presentation by the Swedish Migration Agency (SMA) and the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) of their practices on the provision of reintegration assistance, including the monitoring of reintegration programmes and current projects implemented in Afghanistan and Pakistan respectively.

The second session focused on the broad scale of activities of reintegration service partners, such as IRARA and WELDO in Afghanistan and Pakistan, including the reintegration partnership programmes implemented in these main source countries of irregular migrants, as well the effective monitoring of such programmes. 

The webinar aimed to adding to the knowledge and providing an information and experience sharing opportunity for the development of Turkey’s reintegration programmes in these two main source countries, being Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The webinar is held under ICMPD’s Strengthening Utilization of Additional Policies and Measures for Reinforcing Migration Management in Turkey (SUPREME) project, funded by the United Kingdom and implemented in cooperation with the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM).
