About UN Jobs in Ethiopia – Sub-National Cluster Coordinator (ES/NFI) (P3):
Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental, and non-governmental partners.
With 172 member nations, 8 observer states, and offices in over 100 countries, the IOM is committed to encouraging humanitarian and orderly migration for the benefit of everyone. It accomplishes this by offering services and advice to governments and migrants.
IOM aims to promote international cooperation on migration issues, to assist in the search for practical solutions to migration challenges, and to give humanitarian aid to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people.
The IOM Constitution acknowledges the relationship between migration and economic, social, and cultural development, as well as the right to free movement.
IOM works in the four broad areas of migration management:
- Migration and development
- Facilitating migration
- Regulating migration
- Forced migration.
Among the IOM’s work in these areas are the promotion of international migration law, policy debate and guidance, the protection of migrants’ rights, migration health, and the gender dimension of migration.
