The Activities of the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities: January 2014 to December 2014

The basic philosophy behind the institution’s approach to conflict prevention remains unchanged: a society at peace with itself will more likely be at peace with its neighbours.

Abstract

This article provides a summary of activities of the osce High Commissioner on National Minorities during 2014. The basic philosophy behind the institution’s approach to conflict prevention remains unchanged: a society at peace with itself will more likely be at peace with its neighbours. To achieve this internal stability, respect for the rights of persons belonging to national minorities is essential. The year 2014 was challenging for the High Commissioner who, together with other osce Institutions and structures, faced the challenge of reacting to the rapidly evolving crisis situation in Ukraine. This topic dominated others in the institution’s work. Despite this, the High Commissioner continued to engage across the full breadth of her geographic and thematic portfolio. She personally undertook official country visits to twelve participating states, several more than once. During these visits, she promoted her unique approach to conflict prevention—the integration of society with respect for the rights of national minorities.
