Through a large footprint of offices worldwide, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) collects and reports on original data from a number of sources in its own programmes and operations. Some of this information is publicly available while other data is collected for internal use only. In all cases, data collection and management adheres to IOM’s Migration Data Governance Policy. In cases where IOM processes beneficiaries' personal data, this is done in full respect of IOM’s Data Protection Principles. In principle, only anonymized data may be made publicly available. In no case would personal data be made publicly available if the beneficiary has not consented to it.
