PROBLEMS IDPs, REFUGEES AND RETURNEES ARE FACING:

  • Their homes have been destroyed, usurped or fraudulently taken from them and they are unable to return or plan to invest
    for their future in the places where they live
  • Exclusion from schemes giving compensation to workers upon privatization of their former employer.
  • Institutional obstacles in acquiring necessary documents to access basic rights and take part in normal civic activities
    (e.g. a birth certificate, health insurance records, citizenship certificates, recognition of diplomas, years of service, pensions
    and other employee rights and access to property and court records)
  • The lack of security in the places of origin
  • Difficulties in integrating and engaging in long term social, cultural and economic activities in a temporary place of residence
