Resettlement is a humanitarian endeavor, sometimes life-saving and always life-changing. Looking ahead at the evolving resettlement landscape, there will be increasingly more people forced to move who are not protected under the 1951 Refugee Convention, and finding good durable solutions will require the collaborative engagement of many actors across a range of services. IOM is well suited to meet the challenge, and assist governments to help refugees integrate successfully into receiving communities. Successful resettlement is migration management at its best, it's an investment in human capital and an empowerment of people.
Upon the request of governments, IOM provides the following resettlement services: case processing, health assessments and travel health assistance, pre-departure orientation/integration and movement/travel operations.
