General Functions:

IOM has been working to support the GoT in strengthening Turkey's Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR) mechanism by providing technical support to develop the legislative and regulatory framework, and operational capacity. IOM has the longer-term aim of contributing to a sustainable mechanism, led by the GoT, with the required resources, policy framework, infrastructure, partnerships, and technical capacity to respond to the needs of migrants in Turkey seeking to return voluntarily to their countries of origin. Furthermore, IOM has also been working closely with Turkish authorities to strengthen their capacity and understanding of AVRR through a series of direct liaison and sensitization activities in the provision of AVRR assistance.

 

Through this project, IOM aims to contribute to the further development of a structured and sustainable AVRR mechanism in Turkey led by the GoT. Specifically, this project complemented these efforts through capacity building activities aimed at enhancing capacity at local levels amongst government officials and relevant partners. In addition, regular liaison, sensitization, and coordination activities continued with the GoT, to support the broader goal of furthering the integration of the AVRR into its own structures. Moreover, it has supported the GoT’s commitment to the development of a government-led and evidence-based approach to return and reintegration in Turkey.
