Post-Deportation Monitoring Network

What happens to rejected asylum seekers post-deportation is still largely unknown. They might be apprehended by state security and sent to prison, tortured, tried for treason, or even killed.

While evidence is increasing that many rejected asylum seekers who are deported are grossly mistreated in receiving countries, deporting countries do not monitor what happens after deportation. We argue that such deportations can amount to refoulement.

Many organisations that work with rejected asylum seekers pending deportation have long been aware of this problem. Yet most organisations in host countries do not have the capacity to do post-deportation monitoring. Moreover, while organisations in receiving countries are willing to help, they simply do not know when someone is being deported.

The Post-Deportation Monitoring Network (PDMN) aims to address these issues. Our team is in the process of identifying and recruiting partner organisations and committed individuals in deporting and receiving countries. These organisations and individuals are compiled in our online directory.

This network has three main goals:

to protect and assist rejected asylum seekers post-deportation;
to document and report post-deportation human rights violations;
and to use such reports to lobby governments in host countries to change their asylum policies.

We envision PDMN to work as follows:

Before a pending deportation, an organisation that works with the rejected asylum seeker uses our online directory to contact an organisation in the respective country of origin.
Using the relevant forms (forthcoming), the organisation in the host country will provide the organisation in the country of origin or a third country with the information needed to assist the rejected asylum seeker effectively upon arrival (i.e. name, date and time of arrival, airline, brief overview of the asylum claim, etc.).
The organisation in the country of origin or in a third country will assist the deportee upon arrival depending on the organisation’s capacity. Services might include:

Airport pickup
Legal assistance
Advocacy if the deportee is arrested
Documentation of human rights violations
Sign-posting deportees to organisations providing reintegration assistance.

Throughout the process, we ask all partners to keep the PDMN team updated so that we can compile data to be used for reporting and lobbying.

If you or your organisation are interested in being listed in our online directory, please contact us and provide a brief description of the services you can provide to deportees and your contact details.

« Une #expulsion collective vers l’#Afghanistan se prépare », l’Office des #étrangers dément

#BRUXELLES - Quelques centaines d’#Afghans se sont rassemblés ce lundi matin dans l’église du Béguinage à Bruxelles. Ils craignent de faire l’objet d’une expulsion collective vers leur pays touché par la guerre.

Action de la #communauté_afghane à #Bruxelles contre les expulsions

Suite à l’alerte d’#expulsions par #vol_collectif vers Kaboul, 200 à 300 Afghans ont entamé ce 15 juillet 2013 une semaine de #sensibilisation dans l’église du Béguinage à Bruxelles. Ils se mobilisent contre ces expulsions et pour faire pression sur le gouvernement afin d’annuler ce projet (plus que probable) de vol collectif vers Kaboul. Plusieurs familles avec enfants sont parmi eux.
