Making a case for return preparedness is crucial to realizing that current migration policies have disregarded so far the various implications stemming from the existence of various levels of return preparedness. It could even be argued that, for having focused exclusively on the securitization of temporary labour migration, many migration countries find themselves with inadequate instruments aimed at supporting the permanent and temporary return of migrants, let alone their reintegration needs. Making a case for return preparedness is also, if not above all, an attempt to raise awareness of the evidence that, beyond established paradigms, a lot remains to be done in order to respond concretely to migrants’ rights, including their aspirations for stability and advancement in their lives.
