Opis radnog mjesta: OSCE Vacancy: Deputy Head, Human Dimension Department

Closing Date of application 23-11-2016

OSCE missions and field activities are the front line of OSCE work in countries that require assistance and are the agent through which political decisions are translated into action. Each mission has a different mandate, but generally work addresses early warning, preventive diplomacy, conflict management and post-conflict rehabilitation.

The General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), negotiated in Dayton, Ohio, and signed in Paris, France in late 1995, shapes the work of the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
