In the Federal Republic of Germany, the International Organization for Migration works with ministries and government agencies such as the Federal Ministry of the Interior and Community, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Federal Foreign Office, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, corresponding state ministries as well as civil society organizations, welfare and diaspora associations.

Areas of work include return and reintegration, resettlement and humanitarian admission, family reunification, crisis response, resource mobilisation and psychosocial support.

The Berlin office is also the liaison office to the German government for international cooperation and IOM projects around the globe in the fields of humanitarian aid, crisis prevention, stabilization, peacebuilding and development.

With the Global Migration Data and Analysis Centre (GMDAC) in Berlin, IOM promotes a better public understanding of migration and contributes to evidence-based policymaking by analysing IOM and other sources of data.

Today, more than 180 employees of 45 different nationalities work for IOM in Berlin, Nuremberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Bremerhaven.

Since January 2021 Jean-Philippe Chauzy is Chief of Mission.
