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, combating human trafficking, 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. ODIHR's assistance projects and other activities are implemented in participating States in accordance with ODIHR's mandate.
ODIHR reports on hate crimes across the OSCE region and supports the 57 OSCE participating States and civil society in their efforts to effectively prevent and respond to hate crimes, and to facilitate mutual respect and understanding. ODIHR's work is focused on addressing specific forms of intolerance through multi-faceted programmes that address education, law enforcement and criminal justice, victim protection and support, legislation, monitoring and the collection and dissemination of information. ODIHR builds the capacity of civil society to recognize and monitor hate crimes and to work on developing effective responses in communities.
