General information about "URA 2"

"URA 2" is the follow-up project to a project for returnees that was supported by the European Commission. It ran from January 2006 to October 2008 and provided support for Kosovan returnees integrating back into their home country.

The "URA 2" has been been running since January 2009 and is supported on a purely national basis. In addition, building on the first project, the German Federal Government and the Federal Länder Baden-Württemberg, Lower Saxony, Norht Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia have joined together with the aim of facilitating the reintegration of people returning to the Republic of Kosovo and of further improving the management of returnees as a whole.
