Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe : Head, Strategic Police Matters Unit (S), OSCE Secretariat, Vienna 0 Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) vom 19.06.2021, 00:00 Uhr Head, Strategic Police Matters Unit (S), OSCE Secretariat, Vienna Organization: Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Country: Austria Closing date: Wednesday, 21 July 2021 Background: The position is open for secondment only and participating States are kindly reminded that all costs in relation to assignment at the Secretariat must be borne by their authorities. Candidates should, prior to applying, verify with their respective nominating authority to which extent financial remuneration and/or benefit packages will be offered. Seconded staff members in the OSCE Secretariat and Institutions are not entitled to a Board and Lodging Allowance payable by the Organization. The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis. The OSCE Secretariat in Vienna assists the Chairmanship in its activities, and provides operational and administrative support to the field operations, and, as appropriate, to other institutions. The Transnational Threats Department (TNTD), as part of the OSCE Secretariat in Vienna, Austria, plays a key role as the focal point of OSCE-wide programmatic activities aiming at countering transnational threats and ensuring co-ordination and coherence of action across all three OSCE dimensions, among all executive structures while respecting their mandates. The TNTD comprises the Co-ordination Cell (CC), the Strategic Police Matters Unit (SPMU), the Action against Terrorism Unit (ATU) and the Border Security and Management Unit (BSMU). The SPMU responds to requests from participating States for specific expert advice on policing and addressing threats from criminal activities. Democratic and functioning policing has played a vital role in preventing conflict (particularly secondary conflicts), in preserving social stability during political crises, as well as in supporting the post-conflict transition. Equally important is that without effective criminal justice system fully in line with the rule of law and human rights principles, there can be little likelihood of social, political or economic stability. The OSCE Gender Action Plan is committed to increasing the number of female staff in all areas of the OSCE’s work. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for this management opportunity.
