 will focus on specific issues such as the human rights situation in certai=
n countries.
Two major publications will be launched by ODIHR during the conference: a r=
eport on hate-motivated incidents in the OSCE region, and a status report o=
n the implementation of the OSCE's 2003 Action Plan on Roma and Sinti.
Journalists are invited to attend the opening session, which will begin at =
