The Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related Transnational Crime

Technical Experts on Returns and Reintegration

At the Sixth Bali Process Ministerial Conference in Bali, Indonesia on 23 March 2016, Ministers recognised that timely, safe and dignified returns of persons found not to be owed international protection is an important element of orderly migration. Building on outcomes from the Roundtable on Returns and Reintegration, in Manila, Philippines in December 2015, Ministers agreed to the establishment of a Technical Experts Group to exchange best practices with respect to returns and reintegration.

The Bali Process Technical Experts Group on Returns and Reintegration (TEG-RR) is a network of experts on returns and reintegration from Bali Process member countries and organisations. The TEG-RR is a mechanism through which Bali Process members can share information on returns and reintegration, including key policy initiatives, trends and issues, and identify opportunities for cooperation and capacity building.
