Established in 1951, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.
IOM works to help ensure the orderly and humane management of migration, to promote international cooperation on migration issues, to assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people.
CEU's Career Services Office will host an info session with a short presentation and a Q&A with IOM's Talent Management Lead Anke Strauss and Rafael Trejo, Internship Programme Associate, both working in the IOM's headquarters in Geneva.
