Several migration studies have confirmed the important role of the family for emigration as well as for arrival and integration in the country of destination, but comparatively few scholars have emphasized the impact of the family for return migration, reintegration and re-emigration. By taking the situation before departure, the experience abroad and the return and post-return conditions into account, this study conceptualize migration as a dynamic social process and investigates the character and role of family networks for the entire migratory process. On the one hand, the question is, what kind of support and assistance does the family provide and how do return migrants benefit from these linkages. On the other hand, the paper asks about family expectations and pressure towards return migrants. Data and Methodology Definition of return migrant (Cassarino 2008: 3): any person returning to his/her country of origin, in the course of the last ten years, after having been an international migrant in another country return may be permanent or temporary it may be independently decided by the migrant or forced by unexpected/adverse circumstances 350 Armenian return migrants were interviewed using a structured questionnaire. More than half of the surveyed Armenians (57%) declared the Russian Federation as their main country of immigration and eventually returned from there. Return migration and reintegration Most respondents decided on their own initiative to return (71%), the remaining 29% declared that their return was due to adverse circumstances. Of those who decided or chose to return on their own initiative, the large majority declared personal, family and/or socio-cultural reasons as decisive for their return: the main reason to return was homesickness/nostalgia the second main reason was to take care of the family other key motives to return were family problems in the country of origin and education and upbringing of children in Armenia Introduction Re-emigration Return migrants who received financial assistance from family members from inside and outside the country are more likely to consider re-emigration than those who were able to rely on their own income. Conclusion the family affects many aspects of the migration cycle and plays a significant role in return migrants lives many respondents remained in close contact with the non-migrant family members in Armenia while living abroad (e.g. sending regular remittances) family networks do not only play an important role for emigration (i.e. enabling departure and facilitating arrival in the destination country), but also for the decision and process to return to Armenia reasons to return tend to be mainly motivated by family factors (nostalgia for home country and people, the duty to support family, etc.) upon their return, the majority of respondents received family support (moral and psychological assistance, (re)establishing contacts and networks, but also financial aid) family plays an important role as information source in the return process, as return motivation and in some cases for the social and economic reintegration of returnees, but economic obstacles force many return migrants to consider re- emigration family networks constitute a form of social capital: mobilize necessary social and financial resources (e.g. information, contacts, money, etc.) to support a member of their family throughout the migration cycle however, family networks may also impact return migrants negatively by constraining access to desired resources and thus, preventing social mobility the involvement in these bounded family networks may undermine individual initiatives through pressing social obligations and excessive claims to support family members Thus, return migrants membership in family networks enables and facilitates, but at the same time constraints return migration, reintegration and re-emigration. For more information on the Cross-Regional Information System (CRIS) on the Reintegration of Migrants in their Countries of Origin, see European University Institute Annett Fleischer The role of the family for return migration, reintegration and re-emigration in Armenia Family and kin may often function as support and security network for returnees, particular for those who are unemployed and have no other financial resources to rely on.
