Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration 2015 Key Highlights

The AVRR 2015 Key Highlights report showcases IOM’s contribution to return management in 2015. It provides an overview of the current trends at both the global and regional levels regarding voluntary return and reintegration assistance. 

In 2015, AVRR support was provided to nearly 70,000 migrants: the highest level in the past fifteen years and an increase of almost 60 per cent as compared to 2014. Among these returnees were migrants in vulnerable conditions who received specific attention and were assisted with tailored support in their voluntary return and reintegration process. 

The information is presented this year through the use of new graphics and maps produced by IOM Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC), which will make it easier and more appealing for the reader to learn about the work carried out by the Organization.
