The Activities of the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities: June 2002 ― June 2003

The Activities of the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities: June 2002 ― June 2003 I. INTRODUCTION This overview of the activities of the High Commissioner on National Minorities (HCNM) of the OSCE covers the period June 2002 through June 2003.1 Currently, the HCNM is Rolf Ekeus of Sweden. He took up his duties on 1 July 2001, succeeding Max van der Stoel of the Netherlands who served as High Commissioner between 1 January 1993 and 30 June 2001. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the institution of the HCNM, on 31 January 2003 Daan Everts, Personal Representative of the Chairman-in-Office (The Netherlands) of the OSCE, gave a speech on the HCNM's contribution to peace and ethnic harmony in Europe over the preceding decade. Ambassador Everts noted that the HCNM's success could be attributed to the effective use of quiet diplomacy, complementarity with other international organizations, and the issuing of general and country-specific recommenda- tions.2 .2 The following day, the HCNM held an off-the-record dialogue on Preventing Conflicts Through Integrating Diversity attended by a diverse group of experts on conflict preven- tion, interethnic relations and minority rights. In a wide-ranging discussion, participants examined such areas as the HCNM's involvement in Central Asia and his interaction with the European Union, including vis-a-vis `new minorities'. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Yearbook of Minority Issues Online Brill

Abstract

I. INTRODUCTION This overview of the activities of the High Commissioner on National Minorities (HCNM) of the OSCE covers the period June 2002 through June 2003.1 Currently, the HCNM is Rolf Ekeus of Sweden. He took up his duties on 1 July 2001, succeeding Max van der Stoel of the Netherlands who served as High Commissioner between 1 January 1993 and 30 June 2001. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the institution of the HCNM, on 31 January 2003 Daan Everts, Personal Representative of the Chairman-in-Office (The Netherlands) of the OSCE, gave a speech on the HCNM's contribution to peace and ethnic harmony in Europe over the preceding decade. Ambassador Everts noted that the HCNM's success could be attributed to the effective use of quiet diplomacy, complementarity with other international organizations, and the issuing of general and country-specific recommenda- tions.2 .2 The following day, the HCNM held an off-the-record dialogue on Preventing Conflicts Through Integrating Diversity attended by a diverse group of experts on conflict preven- tion, interethnic relations and minority rights. In a wide-ranging discussion, participants examined such areas as the HCNM's involvement in Central Asia and his interaction with the European Union, including vis-a-vis `new minorities'.
