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.
The Office’s Democratization Department implements activities in the following thematic areas: rule of law, democratic governance and gender, migration and freedom of movement, and legislative support. The ODIHR assists participating States in developing policies and legislation that meet their human dimension commitments. To this end, support includes technical assistance and expertise to OSCE field operations for the fulfilment of their democratization and institution building mandates.
ODIHR promotes the development and implementation of legal and regulatory frameworks that respect the right to freedom of movement and free choice of place of residence as per international human rights standards and OSCE commitments. The term freedom of movement is used by OSCE participating States to describe a wide range of topics that concern the right of all people to leave and return to their state, and to move freely within the borders of their own state. It also covers the rights to freedom of movement within state borders and the facilitation of freer cross-border movement and contacts among people, institutions and organizations in participating States.
ODIHR Migration and Freedom of Movement Unit (MFMU) is looking to recruit an Intern for a 6 months’ period starting in March/April 2019 to support project activities within the framework of the Migration and Freedom of Movement Project/Freedom of Movement and Human Contacts Portfolio.
