Reintegration im Herkunftsland

The counselling interview in view of a return to the country of origin

An example in the canton Valais

Christiane Terrettaz, from the advisory centre of the canton of Valais, about the choice of the candidates : 

«The advisory centre for a return of the canton Valais regularly uses ISS – Swiss Foundation of the International Social Service – to ensure the sustainable reintegration of vulnerable people, when aid to the return granted by the Federal Office for Migration proves insufficient. A family without employment opportunities, who can only rely on a weak social network and whose children require further education, needs greater support – a support that the ISS can provide. In these situations, the complementary support granted by the ISS for a professional project or training is often a factor to maintain their willingness to return and gives them confidence in their capability to cope with the future.»
