The focus is on the country of asylum, rather than on the country of return and aims to do three things. First, to explain why the Swiss authorities went through the arduous exercise of negotiating a return scheme aimed solely at failed Sri Lankan asylum seekers. Second, to describe the political and social consequences of the return scheme for the Swiss Sri Lankan population. And lastly, to explore alternative approaches to return which could have the potential to promote voluntariness, fairness and sustainability. Part of the rationale for a chapter of this kind is based on an assessment that in order to understand fully the implications of a return scheme it is as important to examine the situation in the country of asylum, from where people are going to be repatriated, as it is important to examine the conditions to which they are going to be returned. Repatriation is enormously complex, raising issues about reintegration and development, international law and human rights, security and justice, developed world-developing world relations and much more besides. This discussion touches on that complexity by arguing that examinations of return should scrutinise closely the reasons that lie behind governments' decisions to pursue return schemes, and analyse with care the effects and implications of return arrangements on the entire asylum population - not just those targeted for return but also those exempted.
