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

IOM has been active in Poland since 2002 under an agreement with the Polish government and conducts various migration programs, including activities supporting the integration of male and female migrants into Polish society. IOM in Poland implements projects aimed at the private sector to promote ethical recruitment, respect for the rights of migrants and migrant women as well as the elimination of forced labour from value chains and the prevention of human trafficking.

Almost eight years after the onset of the crisis in eastern Ukraine, the level of intensity across the entirety of country has escalated. With violence now spread country-wide, internal displacement has reached approximately 6.5 million people since February 24th, and this is likely to increase as fighting continues to intensify, including targeting of civilian and residential infrastructure. New waves of displacement and the deteriorating living conditions of the most vulnerable will continue to exacerbate in the current context.
