Reintegration experiences of Burundi returnees

Since 2017, UNHCR has facilitated the voluntary repatriation1 of more than 210,000 Burundians, from Tanzania (above 147,000), Rwanda (above 31,000), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (above 14,000), Uganda (above 14,000) and other countries. However, Burundi remains one of the least developed countries in the world and although the political climate has improved, the social system remains porous and fragile. Against the backdrop of socio-economic difficulties and humanitarian funding challenges, this snapshot attempts to shed light on the reintegration experiences of Burundian returnees, focusing on the main challenges upon return, economic and social integration, assistance needs and intentions for the future.
