training trainers (TOT) for Iraqi officials on international migration law

Long-term stability in Iraq requires increased government capacity in migration management.
To further address gaps in the legislative framework for migrants, IOM Iraq conducted a series of training trainers (TOT) in collaboration with the Ufuq Organization for Human Development sessions for Iraqi officials. The officials that participated in the TOT delivered legislation-oriented training to their counterparts in various ministries.
Recently, IOM held specialized training for Iraqi officials on legal concepts and legislative techniques related to international migration law. This was part of a cascading training series presented by members of the inter-ministerial Technical Working Group on migration. Throughout the training sessions, presenters included the Deputy Director General of the Parliamentary Development Institute of the Iraqi Parliament and several other members of government ministries, including from the Kurdistan Regional Government. Participants engaged in in-depth discussions about the legislative process in Iraq, the incorporation of human rights standards in policymaking, and the inclusion of affected communities in migration policy development.
This training was made possible with support from the European Union as part of the AWDA AMINA project.
