Nosso Jogo Logo

The Summer Games 2016 are about to start: Between 5. and 21 August respectively 7 to 18 September the Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place in Rio de Janeiro.

As part of the project "Nosso Jogo – Initiative für globales Fair Play", supported by the Austrian Development Agency and co-ordinated by the Vienna Institute for International Dialogue and Cooperation (VIDC), the BIM drafted the study "Olympia-Hoffnungen für österreichische Unternehmen in Rio 2016?" dealing with challenges, potentials and corporate responsibility for human rights in the context of the major sports events, specifically analyzing the situation in Rio the Janeiro.

From 14 to 16 June 2016 a delegation from the Kyrgyz Republic visited Riga to learn about the Latvian experiences in strengthening human rights and the rule of law in the framework of criminal law. This visit was organized in the framework of the project supported by the European Union “Strengthening the Rule of Law in the Kyrgyz Republic” and implemented by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights. The delegation was comprised of prosecutors from Bishkek and Osh who, inter alia, work specifically with human rights issues in criminal proceedings.

Cover Studie

The BIM has drafted a study on how a new asylum policy for Europe could look like. The study, which was funded by the civil society platform respekt.net, provides an overview of the international obligation to protect, an analysis of the EU asylum acquis and its deficiencies from a human rights perspective, presents current proposals for change and seeks to provide recommendations for steps towards a new asylum policy in and for Europe.

From 20 to 23 June 2016 the Fundamental Rights Forum (FRF) of the EU Fundamental Rights Agency took place for the first time in Vienna. The FRF was an impressive effort, bringing together human rights experts, academics, practitioners, policy makers and representatives of civil society, from a variety of different backgrounds and countries to discuss and reflect on current human rights challenges and possible responses and solutions to them. The diversity of perspectives as well as the richness of formats and arguments was truly remarkable.

The research project "ClimAccount Human Rights Accountability of the EU and Austria for Climate Policies in Third Countries and their Possible Effects on Migration" has published a policy brief summarising the most important findings of the project and presenting recommendations to policy makers in order to ensure human rights when implementing climate action.
