Returning to Venezuela

Drivers, expectations, and intentions

There are reports from the borders between several Latin American states of the movement of Venezuelans returning to Venezuela. However, there is almost no information on the motivations and future migration intentions of the population willing to return to Venezuela. This briefing paper uses new 4Mi data to explore the profiles of Venezuelans heading back, the factors driving them to leave their host countries, and their motivations for returning. It also provides an analysis of the expectations of refugees and migrants about their return to Venezuela and their future migration intentions.
