This report compares the experiences of several existing assisted return programmes for rejected asylum seekers and irregular migrants in Europe and draws lessons for future programmes. Specifically, the report focuses on three aspects: programme implementation, targeting of assistance, and evaluation.

Introduction

Across most European countries, asylum policies have variously targeted backlogs, decision-making times and the deterrence of “bogus” asylum seekers; however relatively little attention has been paid to the return of rejected asylum seekers. The resulting increase in their numbers, combined with increasing numbers of “illegal” migrants and victims of trafficking, has recently focused attention on policies for facilitating their return.
