The EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub (KMH) has just released the fourth issue of the Sustainable Reintegration Knowledge Bites Series. Click here to read it. 

This fourth issue ("
Qualitative Study on Outwards Referrals") builds on findings from the second Knowledge Bite, which found that  returnees who received direct assistance had higher satisfaction levels and higher reintegration sustainability scores than  those who received assistance through referrals. This study sought to complement these findings on referrals by collecting qualitative information to provide insights into the reasons behind the negative effect of referrals on reintegration sustainability outcomes and satisfaction. It covered four countries: Cameroon, Guinea, Senegal and the Gambia.

The Sustainable Reintegration Knowledge Bites Series, launched in October 2020, aims to present findings pertaining to sustainable reintegration outcomes emerging from analyses based on the Reintegration Sustainability Survey data and other monitoring and evaluation (M&E) data centrally available on IOM’s institutional case management system. This series is designed to bring such findings to the attention of reintegration practitioners and policy-makers worldwide, as well as to inform and disseminate good practices, lessons learned and recommendations. The data presented in the series has been collected in the framework of the EU-IOM Joint Initiative and other EU-IOM Actions supporting migrant protection and sustainable reintegration.
