Protection Mainstreaming

Protection Mainstreaming is the process of incorporating protection principles in crisis response. Building on the protection initiatives currently on-going within and beyond IOM, this policy process aims at ensuring that do no harm, promoting non-discrimination, meaningful access, safety, dignity, participation, empowerment and accountability measures become integral part of every response to migration crises.

User friendly tools will be soon available to make sure the above considerations are taken into account across the project life cycle.
