The Arab Spring brought Tunisians to Switzerland seeking better economic prospects. Such asylum requests are usually rejected but some Tunisians still stay on as returning home is seen as a failure. A pilot project aims to reverse this.
This summer Switzerland started a pilot project offering repatriation money to Tunisian asylum seekers who agree to return to their country voluntarily. The one year test phase is limited to 250 people. (SF/swissinfo.ch)
