RAN in the Western Balkans - Study Visit to Paris on Managing the Needs of Child Returnees

Background and aim of the meeting 

Children who were born or spent part of their childhood in the territories previously controlled by Daesh in Syria and Iraq have been actively repatriated across Europe, often with their mothers. Kosovo* has received the largest number of returnees in the Western Balkans (WBs), having repatriated 110 citizens in April 2019, including men, women and children, out of a total of 485 returnees. In the EU, France has repatriated the largest number of returned children. Out of approximately 300 French children who returned to France, 75 were repatriated until the end of 2022 and 32 at the beginning of 2023. This data demonstrates the continued importance of the phenomenon.
