Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

The EHoA Regional Strategy 2020-2024 recognizes the importance and value of strategic engagement with Member States and Regional Economic Communities.
