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.

1.ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT AND SCOPE:

IOM Thailand’s Labour Mobility and Social Inclusion (LMI) unit works to foster the synergies between labour migration and development, and to promote legal avenues of labour migration as an alternative to irregular migration. Moreover, LMI aims to facilitate the development of policies and programmes that are in the interest of migrants and society, providing effective protection and assistance to labour migrants and their families. Key LMI interventions include policy advice and capacity-building in labour migration management; protection of workers throughout the labour migration process; promotion of ethical recruitment and decent, including supply chains management; information-sharing and awareness-raising; and migrant training and integration.

LMI in IOM Thailand carries out various regional programmes related to Migration, Business and Human Rights (MBHR), in addition to a number of initiatives carried out directly in partnership with private sector actors, including with Japanese businesses operating in Thailand. Through these programmes and initiatives, IOM aims to enhance migrant workers’ access to their human and labour rights and promote their fair and ethical recruitment and employment. In this light, IOM carries out assessments to assess the recruitment and employment experiences of migrant workers, through migrant centered human rights due diligence assessments.
