ABSTRACT
This article discusses the works of the United Nations specialized agency, International Refugee Organization (IRO). The Director-General of the IRO announced that the organization's Hague mission would be closed on July 31, 1951, including its missions in eleven other countries, in preparation for the scheduled ending of IRO's displaced persons operations on December 31, 1951. IRO, in solving the primary humanitarian problem of displaced persons, developed a processing and transport machine which resettled thousands of immigrants around the world. The Director-General's report suggested that operations on behalf of migrants rather than displaced persons would be even less. IRO had been forced, by political disturbances, to effect costly evacuations of its charges in the far east and elsewhere.
