IOM conducts research designed to guide and inform migration policy and practice. The organization provides a unique space for consultation between researchers and policy makers. Research results are disseminated through numerous publications worldwide. 

All the publications are listed on the general IOM website.  

IOM's research activities world-wide encompass several migration management topics, including migration trends and data, international migration law, migration and development, health and migration, counter-trafficking, labour migration, trade, remittances, irregular migration, integration, and return migration. 

IOM's Migration Research Division has the institutional responsibility for overseeing the conduct and management of applied research.
