iMMO regards the timely and appropriate recognition of victims of torture and inhumane treatment, especially in the context of a procedure for asylum seekers, as a public and moral cause of honor, given letter and spirit of theNetherlandslegal order and the humanitarian tradition of our country. iMMO seeks to play a valuable, charitable role in this.
The timely and appropriate recognition of victims of torture and inhumane treatment requires the development of expertise and a disciplined organization. These are best realized in an independent institute that specializes in this field and that unites all relevant professional disciplines in an integrated operational process.
iMMO intends to be a knowledge institution, contributing to the acquisition and distribution of knowledge and expertise on victims of torture and inhumane treatment. This comprises the relay of experiences from assessments (within the boundaries of confidentiality), offering advice and consultation, offering training, especially with regard to the triage for an assessment by iMMO and the publication of (trend) reports, annual reports and other documents.
iMMO intends to be a fiduciary institution for the victims of torture and inhumane treatment themselves, for all parties involved in the reception, assessment and treatment of those victims and for society in general. iMMO aims at having its judgment accepted by all parties concerned as an authoritative professional expert advice and at having the option of forensic medical assessment guaranteed as a part of the procedure for asylum seekers.
iMMO intends to be an active member of the international community of institutions involved with the reception, assessment and treatment of victims of torture and inhumane treatment.
iMMO works not for profit and after the project phase (2012-2014) intends to be financially self supporting. For further detail, please consult the Core Document Mission, Vission, Values.
