ICARE on the road: live reporting from the OSCE Human Dimensions
Implementation Meeting (HDIM)
October 2 -15, 2006, Warsaw, Poland.

At the HDIM, ICARE will do live reporting of the Human Rights/Tolerance
and non-Discrimination & Roma and Sinti issues on October 9, 11, 12, &
13. Reporting itself starts on October 9.

What is the HDIM
The OSCE Human Dimensions Implementation Meeting (HDIM) is the most
important OSCE meeting of the year. During this 2-week event the OSCE
participating countries gather in Warsaw to talk about a number of
issues and what happened with the implementation of decisions the OSCE
took. Human Rights is one of the important issues that will be covered
during this meeting. NGOs usually participate and contribute to the
HDIM, by doing interventions, side-events and advocacy. That is, those
who are able to travel to Warsaw.

What can you expect from ICARE at the HDIM?
For those of you who know us, we don't have to tell. For others: we will
bring snappy, NGO-style, sometimes in-your-face reporting, including the
ever-feared Quote of the day, articles, opinion (and opiniated) pieces,
video-interviews and photos.

We will cover plenary discussions, interventions and side-events.

The main Human Rights topics within the OSCE Arena right now are
Antisemitism, Muslim-hate, discrimination of Roma and Sinti and Hate
crime, but of course a whole number of other issues will be discussed.

As per usual, we will try to be a channel between those who can't attend
and the meeting itself. So, if you have opinions, contributions in the
form of articles, reports and such, please mail them to us at
hdim@icare.to. We will include those in our reporting.

The OSCE has it's own Human Rights office, ODIHR-Office for Democratic
Institutions and Human Rights, which has a special Tolerance and
Non-discrimination program (TnD), and a Contact Point For Roma and Sinti
Issues, CPRSI.

Please have a look at http://www.icare.to for more info.

Best,

Ronald Eissens
