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.

Following the launch of military operations across Ukrainian territory on 24 February 2022, substantive flows and displacements across Ukraine and toward neighbouring countries have been reported countries in the following days. While air travel has been suspended in Ukraine and Moldova, Ukraine sharesland border with four European Union (EU) Member States: Poland, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia. Other non-EU countries (3) which share their border with Ukraine include Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation and Belarus. Large in and out flows to and through Moldova of Ukrainian and Third Country nationals created the need to set up a monitoring system and analyse the trends and patterns of mobility.
