This research assesses the main challenges and opportunities of implementing the IOM assisted voluntary return and reintegration (AVRR) projects in Morocco using the community-based approach.
The first part of the study analyses the different types of AVRR projects that have been implemented during the last 30 years and identifies the main needs and challenges of the present approach.
The main focus of this research is on how the community-based approach could provide solutions to some of the challenges of the AVRR programmes. A comparative analysis of community-based reintegration projects already implemented allows to identify different types of approach and to elaborate recommendations on how to apply them to AVRR.
The report finally proposes an evaluation of the possibility of implementing community-based AVRR initiatives in the main countries of origin of the beneficiaries of the AVRR programme from Morocco.
