  • OSCE, Youth Activism Seminar in Budapest, November 2016
  • EFOMW participated in Youth Activism Seminar on 3‐4 November 2016 in Budapest.


    The seminar is organised by the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) which is the principal institution of the OSCE responsible for the human dimension. ODIHR’s activities are implemented in 57 participating States in accordance with ODIHR’s political mandate.

    The Seminar brought together 60 youth activists from across the OSCE region to discuss methods of creating coalitions that engage youth groups in combined efforts to effectively challenge anti-Semitism, intolerance and discrimination. 

     

    The objectives of the seminar are to:

    • Bring together youth activists from different communities, and from throughout the OSCE region, in order to facilitate networking and the development of strong and lasting coalitions that will aim to join forces in an effort to reduce anti-Semitism, intolerance and discrimination;
    • Identify common issues and concerns in the fight against anti-Semitism, intolerance and discrimination, that can best be addressed through joining forces, either at a national or regional level; identify issues related to anti-Semitism, intolerance and discrimination that are of special concern to youth;

    • Develop recommendations on how best to promote the forming of coalitions of youth groups to address anti-Semitism, intolerance and discrimination, in the OSCE participating states;

     

    This event is a part of the project Turning Words Into Action to adress anti-Semitism
