The paper aims to analyze the challenges of reintegration of forced returnee women migrants in Bangladesh. Bangladeshi women basically migrated to Middle East countries for earning a better livelihood. Though the recent trend of women’s migration is increasing gradually, they are suffering in pre-departure, post-arrival and re-integration, all the three basic phases of overseas migration. Unlike other research papers on the topic that focus on pre-departure and post-arrival challenges of migration, this paper sheds light on the reintegration challenges of Bangladeshi women migrants. The paper is based on the qualitative research approach. In Depth Interview and Focused Group Discussion are used as tools to collect the primary data from women migrants and the secondary data relevant to the study is collected from secondary sources like books, journals, newspapers, documents, published reports, and authentic online sources. The findings of the study suggest that forced returnee women migrants are facing various types of reintegration challenges such as low social acceptance, challenges in finding new jobs, patriarchy and social constructions, lack of comprehensive reintegration mechanisms, and health and psychological challenges.
