Silk Routes and Black Sea Working Groups discuss return and reintegration

Sofia, 14-15 December 2017 : For two days the Silk Routes and Black Sea working groups gathered to discuss the topic of return and reintegration. Delegations from 22 countries discussed challenges of sustainable return, reintegration and readmission.

Georgia presented the Readmission Case Management Electronic System (RCMS), which inspired Pakistan’s system to identify returnees. During the plenary discussion, all delegations agreed that cooperation on return between countries of origin and destination should be strengthened as well as options for regular migration. Participants agreed that proper identification is one of the key factors for an effective readmission using for example online tools.
