IOM Albania understands migration as both a process and a human condition, requiring facilitative actions and interventions at the level of state, community and the individual. IOM works closely with its stakeholders to engage in multi-level interventions that contribute to the capacity development of state institutions and partner organisations to address the effects of accelerating human mobility. With the mission key focus on three broad priority areas namely resilience, mobility and governance, the mission takes a 3 Fold approach to ensure:

  • Protection for those identified as being vulnerable to violence, exploitation, or abuse, including trafficking, within a migration context as per the determinants of the migrant vulnerability model. This includes facilitating their access to services and supporting the capacities of relevant institutions.
  • Efforts for migrants and societies to strive towards fostering safe, orderly, and regular human mobility.
  • Support for whole-of-government coordination and whole-of-society mechanisms that will help government institutions and key stakeholders at the local and national levels to have relevant skills, knowledge, resources, tools, and evidence to develop migration policies and frameworks contributing to good migration governance
