This session will explore how reintegration support can best be channelled to enhance social cohesion and reduce inequality. Participants will break into four groups, each moderated by an expert. Groups will exchange good practice, and review needs and challenges that returning migrants, communities and governments face in relation to mental health and psychosocial well-being, labour market access, education and culture. Group discussions will also consider the role of government actors and programmes such as the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration to promote inclusive reintegration practices that respond to the priorities of individual returnees and their communities in an integrated and mutually beneficial way.
