OIM passa a fazer parte do Sistema ONU

General Assembly decision makes International Organization for Migration
part of UN system

25 July 2016 – The United Nations General Assembly today unanimously
adopted a resolution approving an agreement to make the International
Organization for Migration (IOM) part of the UN system as a related

“We are living in a time of much tragedy and uncertainty. This
agreement shows Member States’ commitment to more humane and orderly
migration that benefits all, where we celebrate the human beings behind
the numbers,” said IOM Director General William Lacy Swing in a press

“This is an historic day, not only for IOM and the UN, but for
migrants and their families across the globe,” he added.

IOM, which assisted an estimated 20 million migrants in 2015, is an
intergovernmental organization with more than 9,500 staff and 450
offices worldwide. Founded in the wake of the World War II to resettle
refugees from Europe, the organization celebrates its 65th anniversary
in December of this year.

The agreement outlines a closer relationship between the 65-year-old IOM
and the UN to strengthen cooperation and enhance their ability to fulfil
their respective mandates in the interest of migrants and Member States.

“The United Nations and the International Organization for Migration,
recognizing the need to work jointly to achieve mutual objectives, and
with a view to facilitating the effective exercise of their
responsibilities, agree to cooperate closely within their respective
mandates and to consult on matters of mutual interest and concern,”
said the adopted resolution.

Through the agreement, the UN recognizes IOM as an “indispensable
actor in the field of human mobility,” IOM said, adding that this
includes protection of migrants and displaced people in
migration-affected communities, as well as in areas of refugee
resettlement and voluntary returns, and incorporates migration in
country development plans.

“The General Assembly’s decision to approve this Agreement shows the
growing strength of the relationship between IOM and the UN,” said Mr.

“IOM has worked closely with the UN since our foundation at both
operational and policy levels. IOM Member States recognize IOM as the
global lead agency on migration. And now, becoming a part of the UN
family will give IOM a vital voice at the UN table to advocate for
migrants and their rights worldwide,” he added.

Today’s action paves the way for the agreement to be signed by
Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon and Mr. Swing at the UN Summit for
refugees and migrants on 19 September, which will bring together UN
Member States to address large movements of refugees and migrants for
more humane and coordinated approach.

IOM was granted Permanent Observer status to the UN General Assembly in
1992, and a cooperation agreement between IOM and the UN was signed in

Recognizing the need to establish a closer relationship between the two
organizations, the General Assembly earlier this year requested
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to take steps to conclude an agreement in
that regard. The UN chief’s draft agreement, which formed the basis of
today’s Assembly text, was approved by the Council of the IOM on 30
