Knowledge Bite # 6 – Longitudinal Evidence on Sustainable Reintegration Outcomes

This sixth Knowledge Bite focuses on the analysis of the DTM REMAP’s Returnee Longitudinal Survey (RLS). The RLS was conducted in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iraq and Pakistan based on three rounds of data collection in each country. The analysis follows previous Knowledge Bites that relied on the Reintegration Sustainability Survey (RSS) and focuses on four reintegration scores of returnees: economic, social, psychosocial and a composite one. The RLS was collected from 2020 to 2022. As such, the dynamics reported in this Knowledge Bite should be interpreted in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic, and in the case of Afghanistan, the political transition by the De Facto Authorities (DFA) and its economic impact on the country.
