In the Federal Republic of Germany, the International Organization for Migration works with ministries and government agencies as well as civil society organizations, welfare and diaspora associations.

Areas of work include protection, labour mobility and social inclusion, 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 Data Institute (GDI) 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.
