“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights is seeking an Expert/Drafter for Educational Policy Guidelines for the project “Turning words into action to address antisemitism”, based in Warsaw.
From 2016 through 2018 ODIHR is implementing the “Turning words into action to address anti-Semitism” project, providing support to participating states to implement OSCE commitments in this regard, which encourages education on anti-Semitism that ensures a systematic approach, including curricula related to contemporary forms of anti-Semitism in participating States. Within the framework of this project ODIHR plans to develop education policy guidelines, which provide national policy-makers and practitioners with a basis for addressing anti-Semitism at the national level following a human rights approach. The guidelines are also expected to include possible strategies and practical steps for governments, which could be applied across the 57 OSCE participating States. This publication will complement ODIHR’s existing materials to promote tolerance, respect and mutual understanding and recognition of the human rights of individuals in all communities. The publication will be part of a new set of tools which is expected to give national education policy-makers and practitioners a common understanding of how to address anti-Semitism following a human rights approach to education.
Application deadline: 21st March. For more information about the position, click here.
