What started in 2010 as a cooperative effort between Belgium, Germany, Romania and the Netherlands resulted in the establishment of the European Integrated Return Management Network (Eurint) in 2016.
The aim of the Eurint network is to improve cooperation and exchange of good practices between operational staff of Member States of the European Union, the European Commission and Frontex in the area of return management. To assist in maintaining substantial working relations with counterparts in key Countries of Origin, the network focuses on the following aspects:
- Strengthening the information positions of European stakeholders
- Allowing for exchange of best practices and lessons learnt between the stakeholders
- Providing opportunities to discuss issues at both third country and regional level
Eurint is under the management of the Repatriation and Departure Service (R&DS), part of the Ministry of Justice and Security of the Kingdom of the Netherlands since its inception, but will be handed over completely to Frontex in 2020. To highlight the importance of the Eurint network, CILC supported the R&DS to create this video:
The Eurint Network is financed by the Asylum Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF)
