The Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE/ODIHR) has embarked on a project to develop Recommendations on the Protection of Human Rights Defenders in the OSCE region. It is envisaged that the Recommendations and the explanatory report will assist participating States in fulfilling commitments they have made to protect human rights defenders.

This is important work in the protection and promotion of human rights in Europe and we are proud to have Maureen representing the needs of the Traveller community.
