The International Organization for Migration, commonly known as simply the IOM, is an intergovernmental organization that provides both guidance and services to deal with migration issues, such as the handling of internally displaced persons (IDPs), refugees, and migrant workers. It was established on December 6th, 1951, as a direct consequence of mass civilian displacement in the aftermath of the Second World War. 

Since 2016, the IOM has been a related organization of the United Nations. With 174 member states, a further eight states holding observer status, and offices in over 100 countries, the IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all.  

The IOM works with four areas of migration management: migration and development, facilitating migration, regulating migration, and addressing forced migration. The organization is also in charge of promoting migration laws, protecting migrant rights, and assuring the well-being of migrants. The organization works along with governmental, intergovernmental, and non-governmental partners. Its mission is to “promote humane and orderly migration by providing services and advice to governments and migrants” (IOM, 2021).
