The Government of Kosovo adopted a National Strategy for the Reintegration of Repatriated Persons in Kosovo and set up the Department for the Reintegration of Repatriated Persons (DRRP) within the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Through the SUREP project, people who have been repatriated recently to Kosovo are being supported through labour market measures, psychosocial counselling as well as legal and medical advice. The SUREP team works in close cooperation with the local institutions and with Municipal Offices for Communities and Return in 7 municipalities (Fushe Kosova, Istog, Lipjan, Peja, Prishtina, Prizren and Vushtrri), in order to strengthen their capacities by supporting people in the reintegration process. In the area of psychosocial counselling, legal and medical advice, Caritas Switzerland cooperates closely with the Kosova Rehabilitation Centre for Torture Victims (KRCT).
