E-Library on Migration Information Resources in the Middle East
The "e-Library on Migration Resources in the Middle East" is a web-based archive containing resources on migration-related information in the Middle East. By using a search engine in English and Arabic, users can browse through more than 600 papers, statistics, maps and other relevant documents regarding migration in the Middle East.

The website will be updated on a regular basis, with information about a wide range of migration-related topics such as: migrant trafficking, diasporas, internally displaced persons, labor migration, legislation, migrants' rights, migration and development, migration health, migration policies of receiving and sending countries, refugees, remittances, return migration and reintegration.

The purpose of the e-Library is to contribute to the overall understanding of migration in the Middle East and to improve access to migration resources such as studies and documents. Its primary audience is constituted by IOM, governments, regional institutions and others interested in conceptualizing, designing and developing migration management interventions in the region.

The geographical area covered by the e-Library includes the Arab Mashreq (Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, the Palestinian Territories, and Syria), as well as the Arabian Peninsula (Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen).
