|Directorate General for Migration Management (DGMM)||Not available||Ministry of Interior||Yes No|
DGMM is structured as a civilian agency. It has Provincial Departments for Migration Management (PDMM) across the 81 provinces of Turkey. A Council of Ministers Decision issued in February 2018 established 36 District Directorates for Migration Management (İlçe Göç İdaresi Müdürlüğü) in 16 provinces, under the responsibility of the respective PDMM.
The functions and structure of DGMM were revised in 2018 following the inauguration of the presidential system in Turkey. Presidential Decree No 4 abolished previously established councils within DGMM such as the Migration Policy Council and the Migration Advisory Council, which were responsible for developing policies in this area.
UNHCR continues to assist DGMM in building capacity in refugee law and provided training to staff. Similarly, EASO continues providing support to DGMM and PDMMs on working methodologies in the asylum process, especially on matters concerning vulnerable groups, through the implementation of an enhanced roadmap for the period 2019-2021.
