ODIHR is OSCE’s permanent institution created to provide support assistance and expertise on promoting democracy, rule of law, human rights, tolerance and non-discrimination. Mrs. Ingibjörg Sólrún has held the position of director since July 2017.
Together with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Ingibjörg Sólrún will attend a seminar in the evening of 19 April arranged by the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI). The topic for discussion will be how human rights can play a part in international security policy, especially within the OSCE region. The fact that respect for human rights plays a vital role in ensuring long term peace and stability has been an important focus of Norwegian foreign policy for many years.
