This chapter describes a study about the reintegration of child returnees in Burundi, a small conflict-affected country that received more than 600,000 former refugees after the conflict ended in 2000. Using unique, nationally representative data collected in 2011, the authors compare the living conditions of both first- and second-generation child returnees to those of children who had not lived abroad; they used a multidimensional approach that encompasses six reintegration dimensions. The findings show a mixed picture regarding the reintegration into Burundi of child returnees, which supports the use of a multidimensional approach to disentangle the various areas of well-being for returning child refugees. The results highlight that more targeting of return households, and the children that reside within them, is needed in specific areas.
