Mission and objectives

L’OIM s’efforce de promouvoir des migrations humaines et ordonnées dans l’intérêt de tous. Pour cela, elle offre des services et prodigue des conseils aux gouvernements et aux migrants. Son mandat est de contribuer à faire en sorte que les migrations soient gérées de manière humaine et ordonnée, de promouvoir la coopération internationale en matière migratoire, de faciliter la recherche de solutions pratiques aux problèmes de migration, et enfin de fournir une aide humanitaire aux migrants dans le besoin, qu’il s’agisse de réfugiés, de personnes déplacées ou d’autres personnes déracinées. La Constitution de l’OIM reconnaît explicitement le lien entre la migration et le développement économique, social et culturel, de même que le respect du droit à la liberté de mouvement des êtres humains. L’OIM déploie son action dans les quatre grands domaines de gestion des migrations qu’elle a elle-même définis: le couple migration et développement, la migration assistée, la migration régulée et les mesures à mettre en place face à la migration forcée. Parmi les activités transversales, il faut citer la promotion du droit international de la migration, le débat politique et l’effort d’orientation sur la scène migratoire, la protection des droits des migrants, la santé dans le contexte migratoire et la dimension sexospécifique de la migration.
