The workshop brought  together senior UK officials, diplomatic representatives from key countries, NGOs, diaspora groups, international agencies, academics and other experts to raise awareness and understanding of AVR; learning from shared knowledge; and exploring and developing policy and practice for the most effective way forward for a successful AVR programme. The key objectives were:

  • To increase understanding and awareness of AVR among key stakeholders, and to encourage greater dialogue and collaboration
  • To learn from gathered experts what works well, where improvements are needed, and what are the key elements for an effective AVR programme in the future
  • To think creatively about possible new models for effective voluntary return
  • To consider what elements constitute a successful AVR policy, including discussion of reintegration and development benefits, as well as returns targets
