The Labour Migration Branch (MIGRANT) is the unit responsible for labour migration in the ILO, undertaking a number of activities on priority areas of labour migration. MIGRANT takes an integrated approach as concerns the key ILO means of action: the promotion of international standards, policy advice, research, technical cooperation and capacity building. All are used to reinforce each other.
Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.
International Migration and the SOPEMI ( SOPEMI started in 1973. Until 1991, the SOPEMI’s yearly synthesis report Trends in International Migration was not formally published and was not widely known. Since then, it has been published annually and has increased in length and quality. The name was changed to OECD International Migration Outlook in 2006 and it is now regarded as the leader in its field.)
