Crossborder cooperation in the EU

High numbers of Dublin Returnees face immediate homelessness due to government paperwork processing delays. Because of the apparent gaps, NGOs feel the need to establish initiatives, such as the Return Assistance Network (T-DAN) which is part of a European Commission funded project called SISA. This network comprises of ten European organizations with access to over 200 emergency housing solutions throughout Italy to support victims of human trafficking affected by Dublin returns. “We found that bureaucratic delays in communication between Germany and Italy would hinder access to official support by the government. Therefore T-DAN aims to bridge the gap by providing shelter to clients in safe housing and immediate support in the return country,” says Rawan Shrum, initiator of the SISA Project."   > to the article
