A joint Approach to sustainable return

Program objective and Target groups

The European Reintegration Network (ERIN) Program supports returnees from different "ERIN partner countries" to return to the Iraqi Kurdish Region.All groups of returnees, either they return voluntarily or non- voluntarily, are given the chance to be supported by the program.Target groups with special needs, among them families with underage children, elderly people and people with medical needs could be provided with tailor made components to facilitate the reintegration process.


“European Technology and Training Centre”, ETTC, is providing reintegration services and facilities in Iraq for the Iraqi returnees from different European countries.

The projects are designed after detailed and professional assessments arranged by the experts in these fields with support by European organizations.
