Abstract

Th e fact that the Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration (ICEM), the antecedent of today’s International Organization for Migration (IOM), played a key role in handling the Hungarian refugee crisis of 1956, is not commonly known. It was this body, established in 1951 upon the initiative of the US, which organised the registration and transport of some two hundred thousand Hungarian refugees in Austria and Yugoslavia. Based on the archives of the ICEM and the UN Secretariat, as well as on US, British and French foreign policy documents and the relevant scholarly literature, the paper examines this international migration organization in the 1950s, with a focus on the workings of the ICEM concerning the Hungarian refugee crisis, and its infl uence upon the subsequent history of the organization.
