About IOM Iraq

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. As an intergovernmental organization, IOM acts with its partners in the international community to: assist in meeting the operational challenges of migration; advance understanding of migration issues; encourage social and economic development through migration; and uphold the human dignity and well-being of migrants.

IOM Iraq was established in 2003 and has built a strong network of staff, offices and logistics capacity. With more than 1,300 staff and main offices in Baghdad, Erbil, and Basra and 16 sub-offices in key locations, IOM works in cooperation with the Government of Iraq to provide support across all of Iraq’s 18 governorates. Within a fragile political, economic and security environment, IOM Iraq is addressing humanitarian needs, supporting reintegration of returning IDPs, and promoting stabilization of communities. To reduce risks and vulnerabilities of displaced and host communities in Iraq, IOM integrates humanitarian and development approaches and addresses the link between security and development using area-based, tailored approaches founded on strong data analysis.
