IOM in Croatia
The purpose of IOM's Country Office in Croatia is to provide secure and reliable services for persons who require migration assistance, in close cooperation with the government and other stakeholders, while preserving the dignity and rights of the migrating populations.
Croatia joined IOM as a Member State on 23 November 1993. Since then, IOM Country Office in Croatia actively contributed to the government’s migration management efforts and alignment with EU standards, in close cooperation with national counterparts, by providing a gap analysis between national migration laws and the EC acquis. IOM also provided a comprehensive series of trainings to government officials in counter-trafficking and counter-smuggling, equipping and training mobile border units and promoting cross-border cooperation. IOM training focused on sensitizing government bodies to labour migration issues and addressing the essential health care needs of Croatian migrants.
