Data published by the Danish Refugee Council shows that the number of people accepting the offer of 131,242 kroner ($19,451) has fallen from 261 in 2011 to 152 in 2015.
Now both government and opposition parties are looking into reforming the repatriation scheme, according to a report by Berlingske.
“It is possible that the ‘carrot’ offered to return home should be bigger, but the scheme is very generous as it is,” Peter Kofod Poulsen, acting immigration spokesperson with the right wing Danish People’s Party (DF) told Berlingske.
“Some countries should be pressed economically into taking back citizens who can easy return home when there is peace,” Kofod continued.
