IOM and Migrant Integration
Integration is key to effective and comprehensive migration management approaches. It intersects with a number of other major policy areas, including human rights protection and non-discrimination, employment policy, public security, social stability, public health, education, foreign affairs, citizenship and development. Policies and strategies to support the social, economic and cultural inclusion of migrants in their new environment in countries of destination and to educate receiving communities on the diverse contributions of newcomers can reinforce the positive effects of migration. Improved cooperation between countries of origin and destination can also play an important role in making integration work for all concerned.
