This report concerns the Syrian territories, which have been outside the control of the Government of Syria (GoS) and returned to GoS control through so-called reconciliation agreements.

Not all areas/cities are included, but rather a selection that serves to illustrate the different developments.

Le présent rapport est une mise à jour du COI Focus daté du 14 juin 2019. Il s’intéresse à l’attitude des autorités congolaises vis-à-vis de leurs ressortissants de retour après avoir quitté illégalement la République démocratique du Congo (RDC) et/ou avoir introduit une demande de protection internationale en Belgique et/ou y avoir séjourné.
