BACKGROUND AND DEFINITION
The General Framework Agreement for Peace (GFAP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) shapes the work of the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina (the Mission). GFAP established the Mission as one of the bodies responsible for helping to secure lasting peace in BiH and thus to build a stable, secure, and democratic state.
The Mission’s principal aim is to promote stability and reconciliation while assisting BiH on its path to regional political, economic and social integration. Mission’s activities seek to foster systems of governance, justice and education that uphold human rights and the rule of law for all citizens. Moreover, the Mission supports the development of an effective, responsive, and inclusive security sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in keeping with international standards.
Based in the capital city of Sarajevo, the Mission relies on its network of 8 field offices to fully engage citizens and authorities at all levels – municipal, cantonal, entity, as well as State. To adapt as necessary to social and political developments, the structure of Mission’s field work and activities remains flexible. Six focus areas comprise the Mission’s approach: Human Rights; Education; Rule of Law; Gender Equality; Democratic Governance; and Security Co-operation.
1.2 Definition of an Implementing Partner (IP)
In carrying out its project implementation, the OSCE may engage an Implementing Partner (IP). An IP is either a government or non-government entity or agency that is engaged to supplement the work of the OSCE by helping to implement a project or a component of a broader project. Based on the Implementing Partner Agreement, an IP undertakes day-to-day management of a project or its component, including the management of funds and human resources, planning and executing project activities, self-evaluation and monitoring of its activities. IPs used by the OSCE should be not-for-profit organizations and should operate in conformity with national and international legislation in the areas in which they are active.
