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. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

Under the implementation of Phase IV, IOM thus plans to expand its partnership with Marine Police Division (MPD) of the Royal Thai Police, aiming to strengthen the capacity of marine police to combat smuggling of migrants (SoM) and secure sea maritime borders more effectively and efficiently.
