The initial contract will be for one year, renewable until the project ends. The expected duration of the project is until March 2022 and the selected candidate(s) should commit to being available for the duration of the project.
The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis.
The Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) is the principal institution of the OSCE responsible for the human dimension. ODIHR is active throughout the OSCE area in the fields of election observation, democratic development, human rights, tolerance and non-discrimination, and the rule of law.
The Office’s Tolerance and Non-Discrimination Department is currently managing large-scale, extra budgetary project “Turning Words into Action” (WIA) which aims to ensure, that equal, inclusive and resilient societies across the OSCE region are free of all forms of discrimination and marginalization, and that civil society in the OSCE participating States can work effectively to advance democracy and human rights. ODIHR will therefore work with security and educational institutions in the OSCE participating States to provide effective responses to racism, xenophobia and discrimination.
The incumbents provide administrative and logistics support for the implementation of WIA project activities, including organizational and logistical preparation of meetings, relevant correspondence, and record-keeping, including that related to monitoring and reporting on the project. The incumbent supports the Project Officer, and provides back up administrative support for the TND Department.
