Position Paper: Ensuring Safe and Dignified Return and Sustainable Reintegration

Position Paper: Ensuring Safe and Dignified Return and Sustainable Reintegration

Developed as part of the UN Network on Migration’s Thematic Working Group 5 on Dignified Return and Reintegration, this paper identifies key principles and our common position on migrant return and reintegration.

It seeks to assist States and other stakeholders to operationalize Objective 21 of the GCM to cooperate in facilitating safe and dignified return and readmission, as well as sustainable reintegration, along with the other relevant GCM objectives, in line with international legal frameworks and standards.

The Position Paper builds on the Checklist and Mapping developed by the same working group. While distinct products, the position paper, mapping and checklist are meant to provide a 'package' to assist States and other stakeholders to operationalize GCM objectives related to dignified return, readmission and reintegration.
