The Information, Return, and Reintegration of Iraqi Nationals to Iraq (IRRINI) programme was established in 2008 by the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) to facilitate the voluntary return and reintegration of persons from Iraq.
 
The study provides knowledge on how the various components of the IRRINI programme influences the decision for voluntary return to Iraq and insight into how the programme, wholly or partially, contributes to a sustainable return and reintegration. The opinions and perspectives of the returnees are central to the study.
 
The study discusses different models of reintegration support and provides a number of suggestions for how a more sustainable return process can be initiated in Norway and secured upon return to Iraq.
