MIGNEX Background Paper
Migration-relevant policies in Afghanistan
On paper, it appears that policy reform was underway in Afghanistan in alignment with the migration context. Yet in practice, linkages with development policy remained uncertain and a donor-driven focus on return and reintegration added further strain on an already fragile context.
This report is based on data collected in 2020-21 and provides a snapshot of migration policies before the fall of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GoIRA).
