IOM in Colombia

IOM Colombia was established in 1956. In support of the Colombian government, the Organization implements programmes for migrant and vulnerable populations in nearly all departments of the country, with support from various cooperation agencies and stakeholders.

Along with traditional programmes to attend to migratory flows abroad, voluntary returns, and the reintegration of Colombians returning from other countries, and strengthening the government’s capacity to address migratory issues and provide technical cooperation for migration, IOM has redesigned its activities in Colombia to the needs of populations affected by forced migration.

This population includes, among others, victims of the internal armed conflict and human trafficking. In addition, IOM works to support the reintegration, and prevention of recruitment into illegal armed groups. All of IOM’s programmes include gender perspectives and are implemented with comprehensive and inclusive visions for indigenous and Afro-Colombian peoples.
