Employment Assistance Services (EAS) for Kosovars Returnees from Switzerland (EAS-Kosovo 2006)

The programme will build upon current activities and continue to promote sustainable voluntary return and reintegration of Kosovars community members, including ethnic minorities returning from Switzerland by taking appropriate measures to improve socio-economic prospects for both the returnees and members of their receiving communities. The programme will also enhance the capacity of receiving communities to continue to attract, absorb, and retain returning migrants and to prevent further out-migration.
