The European Commission's Directorate-General for International Partnerships (DG INTPA) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) are pleased to invite you to join a public webinar on “Monitoring the sustainable reintegration of child returnees: introducing a new practical tool” that will take place on Thursday, 23 September 2021 at 11am CEST (Geneva time).


The webinar will present the newly launched Monitoring Toolkit and Good Practices for the Sustainable Reintegration of Child Returnees. The Monitoring Toolkit and accompanying study outlining good practices for supporting children reintegration were coordinated by the EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub (KMH) with the financial support of the European Union (EU), and in collaboration with Samuel Hall, DG INTPA and Save the Children.

The Monitoring Toolkit, developed and field-tested by Samuel Hall in Ethiopia, Georgia, Honduras, Iraq and Nigeria, promotes a child-focused approach for both understanding and measuring the sustainable reintegration of child returnees in the economic, social and psychosocial dimensions. The Toolkit puts forth a set of practical tools that take into account the diverse experiences faced by child returnees across those dimensions.

During this event, the tools developed - comprising of quantitative surveys, case studies, focus group discussions and key informant interviews - will be presented and shared. The webinar will be opened and closed by representatives from the EU and IOM. It will also include interventions from Save the ChildrenSamuel Hall and IOM, presenting study rationale and overview, methodology and key findings as well as experiences from the field.

Webinars organized by the KMH and hosted on its Return and Reintegration Platform aim to present specific reintegration practices and encourage experience sharing.

The webinar will take place on Zoom and moderated by the KMH. A dedicated Q&A session is also foreseen to allow for meaningful exchanges with participants. Please register to the webinar and receive indications on how to join the session.
