The World Migration Organization (WMO) is a proposed international organization to provide information and analysis on global (im)migration issues. It would be similar to the World Trade Organization and operate in the United Nations system.[1]

The organization has been proposed by academics and researchers such as Professor Jagdish Bhagwati and Arthur Helton[2] and discussed by organizations such as the Global Commission on International Migration (GCIM), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the World Bank and others.[3][4][5]
