NORDEM, the Norwegian Resource Bank for Democracy and Human Rights, is a civilian capacity provider specialised in human rights and democratisation. NORDEM’s main objective is to enhance the capacity of international organisations working in these fields.
NORDEM recruits, trains and deploys qualified personnel and is fully funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
NORDEM sends personell on long term assignments to the UN, the OSCE, the EU and other organisations in Africa, the Balkans, Central Asia and in headquarter locations.
NORDEM trains and provides Norwegian election observers to the OSCE, the EU, the Carter Center and other international election observation missions around the world.
NORDEM recruits personnel to the roster once a year. Assignments are often announced through specific vacancies open to other applicants.
NORDEM provides training for roster members and others. We also contribute to the development of relevant methodology.
