IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Migration Activities

IOM first began work in Timor-Leste in August 1999; since then IOM has provided return and reintegration assistance to the approximately 190,000 Timorese people who fled to West Timor during the 1999 post-referendum violence, participated in the disarmament and reintegration of ex-Falintil combatants, and undertaken community stabilisation and infrastructure programmes. As a result of the civil unrest of 2006, the IOM Mission in Timor-Leste quickly began its work supporting the Government in its response to internal displacement and the development of durable solutions for the affected population. By closure of camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in early 2010, IOM had assisted the return of over 17,000 families to their communities.
