After decades of instability, what does the future hold for Afghan migration?
The international community must work together to counter the economic, political and security implications created by this humanitarian disaster.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), an intergovernmental organization established in 1951, deals with a range of issues in the field of migration and works with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. It has 165 member states and a further eight states holding observer status. It has 400 offices in over 130 countries. It promotes international cooperation on migration issues, assists in the search for practical solutions to migration problems, and provides humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people.
