The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE): A Brief Introduction

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OCSE) is the world’s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization. Now headquartered in Vienna, Austria, the OCSE has its origins in the 1973 Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe held in Helsinki, Finland. In 2019, the OCSE has 57 participating countries as members, extending as far west as Canada, and as far east as Mongolia. In this one hour course, we will survey the basic tasks of the OCSE, as defined in the Helsinki Act of 1975, which commits its members to support for arms control, human rights, press freedom and fair elections.
