Hello from IOM X

IOM X is the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) innovative campaign to encourage safe migration and public action to stop human trafficking and exploitation.

The campaign leverages the power and popularity of media and technology to inspire young people and their communities to act against human trafficking – the buying and selling of people for the purpose of exploitation – which is happening in every country in the world today.

Since we first opened our doors in October 2014 we have accomplished a lot! In the first year alone we reached more than 75 million people through engaging content shared via television broadcast, online and screened at events across the Asia Pacific region.

There are a number of factors that make IOM X stand out from other campaigns, but our favourite factor is the emphasis we place on partnerships. At IOM X we recognise that we could not do the work that we do without the strong support from diverse partners and friends across the region: young advocates, community-based counter-trafficking organizations, service providers, technologists, companies with a strong sense of social responsibility, creative talent and, of course, you!

Through applying an evidence-based, participatory approach to the design and roll out of all IOM X content and events we have created a team culture of learning and creativity. With this blog we want to invite you to have a behind-the-scenes look at not only why we do what we do, but also how we do what we do.

Be sure to follow us to meet featured partners, receive updates on emerging trends, and to enjoy sneak peaks into events we attend and others we host. Each week we will aim to share something with you that informed and inspired us to consider exciting and innovative ways to bring you on this learning journey with us so that we can all act to end exploitation and human trafficking.
