The submissions have been reviewed by the Editorial Board and external experts and the Security and Human Rights Monitor is administered under the auspices of the Netherlands Helsinki Committee, based in The Hague.

We look forward to continue contributing to debate and analysis on the work of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), and on the intersection of security and human rights more generally.
