The Voluntary Return & Irregular Migrant Monitoring Centres will i) be a trustable location of first-hand information to identify and address various economic, social, and psychosocial challenges that returnees might face, b) provide advice and support, to PMM and relevant stakeholders, on developing efficient return, readmission and reintegration policies and processes, c) and thereby guide PMM’s operations in the field of irregular migration and return migration from a data-based perspective. The Centres will also allow migrants subject to alternative measures to administrative detention (AtD) to fulfil their reporting duties.
The main programme envisages the establishment (renovation, IT equipment, Furnishing) of NAVRR Coordination Centres in priority provinces of Türkiye, Ankara and Izmir under this project, which will also serve the surrounding provinces for facilitation of voluntary return services. It also foresees the establishment of temporary accommodation facilities if the premises have enough space, for the returnees who prepare their return. The Voluntary Return Coordination & Irregular Migrant Monitoring Centres will be used for information provision, return counselling services and interviews.
