Coming Home In Crisis – Experiences of Irish emigrants returning in crisis situations

Coming Home in Crisis


Irish emigrants return to Ireland in many different circumstances, including in crisis. ‘Coming Home In Crisis‘ explores the lived experiences of people who have returned home in need of support. It draws on interviews with returnees and Emigrant Support Programme funded organisations worldwide, as well as our own case-work in this area. The report presents an in-depth study of the impact of return migration on emigrants who face risk or vulnerability, setting out recommendations to address the range of challenges they encounter on return.
