International Organization for Migration
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), established in 1951, is the leading intergovernmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governments and other partners. With 125 member states, IOM works to help ensure the orderly and humane management of migration, to promote international cooperation on migration issues, to assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people.
IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization working with migrants and governments to respond to contemporary migration challenges. Having more than 50 years of worldwide operational experience, IOM is uniquely positioned to build on its grassroots experience and provide guidance on migration policy. IOM provides information, advice and support to further the efforts of its stakeholders to develop effective national, regional and global migration management policies and strategies. IOM activities include: migration & development, regulating migration, migration health, claims programs, facilitating migration, general programs; movement emergency and post-migration management; migration, climate change & environmental degradation.

One of IOM’s strategic priorities in the area of migration policy is to contribute to increased dialogue between migration stakeholders at bilateral, regional and global levels. This strategy complements and enhances another of IOM’s strategic priorities, which is to strengthen governmental capacity to monitor and manage migration flows through effective policy making, policy dialogue, information sharing and cooperation. IOM works in four broad areas of migration management: migration and development; facilitating migration; regulating migration; and forced migration. Its activities cut across areas that encompass the promotion of international migration law, policy debate and guidance, protection of migrants' rights, migration health and the gender dimension of migration.
