The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, 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, counterterrorism 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 OSCE Secretariat in Vienna assists the Chairmanship in its activities, and provides operational and administrative support to the field operations, and, as appropriate, to other institutions.
The Office of the Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities (OCEEA) deals with economic and environmental issues, operating under the premise that promoting economic prosperity and co-operation on environmental problems can contribute to international security and stability. The OSCE’s role is twofold: a) to monitor economic and environmental developments among participating States, and alert them to any threat of conflict, and b) to facilitate the formulation of economic and environmental policies and initiatives among participating States, to promote security.
The OCEEA has launched the E-MINDFUL project that aims to provide guidance on how to leverage balanced and fact-based communication on migration to foster social cohesion, de-polarize the public perception of migrants and prevent further divisions and instability in hosting societies. The project – co-funded by DG HOME and implemented in partnership with the ILO and the Observatory on Public Attitudes on Migration at the European University Institute (OPAM/EUI) - will involve countries in the EU and in the Western Balkans (Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Germany, Italy, North Macedonia and Serbia).
To this end, the Office of the Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities (OCEEA) requires the technical assistance of a Multidisciplinary Working Group (MWG) – as envisaged in the Project - comprising five experts covering the following areas: sociology of migration, semiotics, psychology/anthropology, communication and marketing. All experts will be tasked with the analysis and assessment of information campaigns/communication endeavours about migration and migrants carried out in the recent past. The expected outcome is to draw lessons learned from awareness raising initiatives and identify key factors that shape perceptions about migrants.
