  4. Nature of the consultancy: Development of 5-year Plans of Action for the Implementation of the African Union Policies on the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons and Smuggling of Migrants in Africa.
  5. Project Context and Scope:

The African Union adopted new policy documents on the prevention of Trafficking in Persons (TIP) and Smuggling of Migrants (SOM) in Africa. These two policy documents, if well implemented, will go a long way in supporting AU Member States and Regional Economic Communities (RECs) in combating issues of Trafficking in Persons and Smuggling of Migrants in Africa. The policies will provide a harmonized policy framework in the continent and will guide AU member States and RECs on relevant areas of collaboration and partnership as well.

It is against this background that the International Organization for Migration and the African Union Commission are seeking to develop 5-year Plans of Action for both the Policy on Prevention of Trafficking in Persons (TIP) in Africa and Prevention of Smuggling in Africa as directed by the Executive Council of the African Union. It is anticipated that these Action Plans will provide guidance on priorities for implementation of the Policy documents by Member States within the stipulated time. Further, the Plans of Action will also provide a monitoring and evaluation framework within the timelines to ascertain the extent to which members States have implemented both Policies.

Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.

With 165 member states, a further 8 states holding observer status and offices in over 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

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.

The IOM Constitution recognizes the link between migration and economic, social and cultural development, as well as to the right of freedom of movement.

IOM works in the four broad areas of migration management:

  • Migration and development
  • Facilitating migration
  • Regulating migration
  • Forced migration.

IOM activities that cut across these areas include the promotion of international migration law, policy debate and guidance, protection of migrants' rights, migration health and the gender dimension of migration.
