Project description

In Cameroon, migration is coupled with specific expectations from the community, in particular related to sharing resources. This research takes a step further by exploring how these perspectives of community members impact reintegration processes of returned migrants, in relation to existing
support structures. Next to increasing our scientific knowledge, clear-cut recommendations for both policy and practice will be formulated to enhance returnees’ reintegration processes.
