In 2016, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) became a related organization of the United Nations. This talk provides a comprehensive and critical insight into the IOM, its transformation, current structure and projects, as well as its capacity, self-understanding and political agenda in a rapidly changing global political order.

Dr. Martin Geiger (PhD University of Bonn, 2010) is Associate Professor of 'Politics of Human Migration and Mobility' at Carleton University, Ottawa. His work focuses on international organizations and non-state actors, and the transformation of global, regional and national migration politics. Dr. Geiger is the author, co-author and coeditor of more than 40 academic articles, chapters, books and reports published e.g. in the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies or the 'International Political Economy series' of Palgrave Macmillan, including The Politics of International Migration Management (2010/2012), Disciplining the Transnational Mobility of People (2013) and The International Organization for Migration.
