Please note that this is a consultancy assignment of a temporary nature, with an expected duration of approximately 109 working days until 31 December 2022.
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 ensure full participation and engagement of relevant authorities in the countries involved, and maximise ownership of the project activities, objectives and outcomes, National Focal Points (NFPs) from key national institutions will act as liaison officers for the project partners, in particular the OCEEA and the ILO in the countries under their respective responsibility. NPFs will serve as entry point for all the information concerning the project implementation and will maintain a constant communication flow with the most suitable institutional setting at national level, while harnessing opportunities to provide the project with visibility. When applicable, NFPs will also interact with OCEEA and ILO with reference to possible co-funding made available by national authorities and its management vis-à-vis the contribution agreement(s) or other tools for financial contribution.
|Tasks and Responsibilities|
Under the co-ordinating role of the OCEEA Economic Affairs Officer (Senior Project Manager (SPM) of the project) and the overall supervision of the Project Steering Committee (PSC), the National Focal Points for Austria, Italy and Germany will be tasked with:
