Enhancing Integration at National and Local Levels
This quarter, IOM worked in cooperation with the Turkish government to share its technical expertise through various projects under its integration programme. In collaboration with the Directorate General for Migration Management (DGMM), IOM continues to facilitate the integration of migrants and refugees living in Turkey by running migrant services centres in Keçiören-Ankara and Şanlıurfa. These centres conduct activities that increase knowledge and awareness of migrants’ rights, the political situation in Turkey, social and economic systems and culture. These efforts support the implementation of integrated public services and awareness-raising campaigns that strengthen the capacities of local authorities and promote social cohesion.
