Cross-Regional Information System (CRIS)

The Cross-Regional Information System on the Reintegration of Migrants in their Countries of Origin (CRIS) is aimed at addressing the social economic legal and institutional factors and conditions shaping returnees’ patterns of reintegration in their countries of origin. In other words; it sets out to explain why some return migrants contribute to development back home; whereas others do not.

Based on a network of partner institutions located in countries of return; field surveys are being prepared to collect a substantial number of interviews with return migrants. The core rationale for CRIS is its cross-regional comparative scope as well as the identification of reintegration indicators; beyond the specificities of each regional context.

The project collect both quantitative and qualitative data in certain countries or regions.
