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.
Under the Maastricht Ministerial Council Decision on Tolerance and Non-Discrimination (TND), the ODIHR was given the task to serve as a collection point for information and statistics on hate crimes, including on forms of violent manifestations of racism, xenophobia, discrimination and intolerance and to report regularly on these issues. Most recently, ODIHR has developed a project focusing on addressing the security needs of Jewish communities; countering anti-Semitism through education, and fostering civil society coalition building.
ODIHR is now looking to recruit an Intern to support this project. The internship will be for a period of up to six months, starting in September 2018.
