Transcript of IOM-CSO Partnerships: Advancing Migration for the Benefit of All

IOM-CSO Partnerships: Advancing Migration for the Benefit of All CSOs are further welcome to apply for Observer status at the IOM Council, which is accorded in line with standard eligibility criteria. This status enables them to participate at the annual Council sessions, which convene migration policymakers from the 146 IOM Member States, 13 Observer States and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations with Observer status. Strategic Objectives for the Way Forward IOM holds the view that in a world ever on the move, more can be achieved for migrants and societies alike by working collaboratively rather than individually.

IOM CSO partners include: Non-governmental organizations (NGOs); Advocacy groups; Migrants’ organizations; Trade unions and/ or professional
