The Agreement with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) encapsulates an opportunity for the creation of common mechanisms of the protection of vulnerable groups of the population. This was emphasized by Deputy Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine Natalia Fedorovych during the signing of the Agreement on Cooperation between the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine and the International Organization for Migration.
The collaboration is being conducted in the framework of the Cooperation Agreement between the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine and the International Organization for Migration signed on 15 September, 2011, which envisages, in particular, the development of common programs and projects aimed at increasing social, economic and cultural benefits of migration and minimizing its negative effects.
"The signing of the Agreement will become a powerful impetus for more fruitful cooperation, and will step up our work in the future. Together, we are shaping mechanisms called to protect the rights of vulnerable groups of the population, such as ATO veterans, internally displaced persons and human trafficking victims. We expect IOM’s assistance will help to highlight the said issues in the global arena," the Deputy Minister underscored.
