* IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. It was founded in the wake of the Second World War to resettle refugees from Europe.
* 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 has an observer status in the UN General Assembly (this is unrelated to it recently being recognised as a related organisation of the UN).
* Several intergovernmental organisations including organs and organisations of the UN have observer status at the IOM.
