IOM in Tajikistan
IOM started its operations in Tajikistan in 1992. Throughout the Tajik civil war, IOM provided instrumental assistance to internally displaced persons and refugees, and later to the Government to facilitate the return and reintegration of tens of thousands following the end of the conflict. In recognition of IOM’s contribution, Tajikistan requested and became a full member state of IOM in November 1994. Ever since, IOM has performed a wide range of actions to help the Government of Tajikistan harness the positive benefits of migration while reducing its negative impacts by providing sustainable and collaborative solutions for managing migration in the country. These include programmes across six functional area including Migration and Development, Counter-Trafficking in Persons, Technical Cooperation & Border Management, Operational Movements, Emergency Response & Community Stabilization, and Migration Health.
