Description: 

Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR) is a core activity of IOM and has provided vital assistance to tens of thousands of migrants returning home every year. It is also a growing area of work as an increasing number of States – both host countries as well as countries of origin – recognize the value of AVRR as an essential component of an effective and humane migration management framework. IOM now implements AVRR programmes in all continents and in mainly two directions: North–South and South–South.
