Samuel Hall and Save the Children are launching the new report titled: “Achieving Durable Solutions for Returnee Children: what do we know?’” authored by Nassim Majidi, Co-Director and Pillar Lead for the Migration Pillar and Stefanie Barratt, Data Standards Pillar Lead at Samuel Hall. The report addresses a gap in knowledge about the often-difficult conditions of children’s return to the areas of (their parents’) origin. It gives an overview of what is known (and what is not) about the return of displaced children to Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia and Syria, four of the most important contexts of return today.
Return triggers the uncertain process of reintegration. Evidence shows that the moment of return is the beginning of a process that takes
time, is multidimensional and is often non-linear. This article published in Migration Policy Practice, Volume IX, no 1, delves deeper into the process of reintegration.
