Abstract

The existence of refugees that have existed for decades and continues to increase from year to year shows that their existence should not be denied. Indonesia itself has yet to ratify the 1951 Refugee Convention and 1967 Protocol so that regulations relating to refugees and asylum seekers have not been comprehensively and complexly regulated, but the Indonesian government specifically issued Presidential Regulation No. 125 of 2016 concerning handling refugees abroad to deal with refugees and asylum seekers who in practice the handling is assisted by IOM which has its own main role and duties. The problem in this study is that IOM in Tanjungpinang has not yet revealed its role and responsibilities as a third party organization that helps Indonesia deal with refugees. This research is classified as sociological legal research (empirical / social-legal research) with a method of approach that sees law as identical with written norms created and enacted by an authorized institution or official. The data used are primary and secondary data sourced from primary. The results of this research IOM occupies a role as a facilitator, helping to take care of all the needs of returning asylum seekers, directing refugees in terms of choices, including requests as refugees and is responsible for providing guidance and legal counseling regarding the placement of asylum seekers as outlined both in national rules and local policies in the area of residence
