The document sets out core indicators for monitoring and evaluating assisted voluntary returns and reintegration programmes (AVRR) in the EU. This common framework aims to promote monitoring and evaluation of AVR(R) throughout the EU, to encourage Member States to start monitoring and evaluating, to improve the quality of monitoring and evaluating and to help with more comparable data collection. The common methodology can be applied by Member States on a voluntary basis and it can help them to design more effective AVR(R) programmes.

This focussed study informs about different approaches employed in the EU Member States and Norway to ensure that irregular migrants are informed of options for return, including voluntary and assisted voluntary return. Besides, it maps the estimated scale of irregular migration. In respect to the dissemination of information on voluntary return to irregular migrants who are not in contact with the authorities, the study identifies the main challenges faced by Member States, provides information on national approaches involving migration and asylum authorities, other public authorities and other actors, describes the role of various involved actors, provides details about the tools used as well as the evaluation of the effectiveness of these tools.
