Background Information

The Migrant Protection and Assistance Division (MPA), situated in IOM’s Headquarters (HQs), has the institutional responsibility for providing strategic and policy support, technical guidance, and other necessary resources to support field missions in the areas of protection and assistance to migrants in vulnerable situations (AVM), counter-trafficking (CT), and assisted voluntary return and reintegration (AVRR). Through its presence in each region MPA also aims to address critical gaps in protection and migration management among states through capacity building, direct assistance and data and information management to support evidence-based advocacy, policy-making, and programming.

MPA provides protection and assistance to hundreds of thousands of migrants every year, including trafficked persons, smuggled migrants with protection needs, migrants in irregular situations, stranded migrants, unaccompanied and separated migrant children, and migrants subjected to violence, exploitation or abuse.

In the context of MPA’s information management strategy, IOM’s global migrant case management application (MiMOSA) is being upgraded and expanded to ensure that all individuals assisted have their case data systematically stored and managed through a centralized, standardized application which allows unique cases to be tracked across different countries and access points. Inter alia, the systems expansion will include the development of a mobile application to reach challenging operational contexts, including Migrant Resource and Response Mechanisms (MRRMs), detention facilities, border points, boat disembarkation points, and other difficult field locations.

The system expansion will focus in its first phase on countries targeted by the EU funded “EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration” (hereinafter “the Joint Initiative”) to ensure its adaptation and use also in challenging operational contexts, before being deployed to further regions in due course. By improving the collection, management and analysis of migrant protection and assistance data the MPA Division aims to make workflows smarter and more efficient in addition to rapidly developing the evidence base for migrant protection and assistance policy and programming.



The intern will work under the guidance and supervision of the Information Management Officer in coordination with the Knowledge Management and Data Officer and other colleagues in IOM Headquarters.
