Jan 01, 2017
Over the last half decade, IOM has implemented many counter-trafficking actions in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan. Although there have been major improvements in efforts to combat trafficking in human beings (THB) within these countries, as the modes of operation of traffickers continue to evolve, States need to ensure that interventions continue to address the needs of victims on the ground while at the same time focusing on targeted capacity-building of law enforcement.


Since its establishment in 1993, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Mission to Georgia has fostered an effective partnership with the Government of Georgia to support the development of national migration related management systems, nurture civil society development, provide diverse services for various groups of migrants and raise public awareness and education initiatives on migration-sensitive issues.
