Deported: Human Rights in the Context of Forced Returns

Amnesty International Report, July 2017
13 November, 2017

Unless States know precisely how returned migrants can reintegrate their country of origin, forced returns may be in violation of human rights standards

“Amnesty Netherlands has published an English language summary of its report on deportation procedures from the Netherlands. The report illuminates amongst others the protection needs of vulnerable people prior to and after deportation; human right risks upon arrival at airports in countries of origin; and the need for monitoring and oversight mechanisms for the protection of human rights before, during and after deportation. Besides calling for human rights monitoring of reception proceedings and identification procedures at airports of arrival, the report’s recommendations also address concerns about the consequences of emergency travel documents, the scheduling of return flights and deportees’ access to means of communication prior to return flights.”
