About the OSCE
With 57 participating States, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is the world’s largest regional security organisation and is the primary instrument for early warning, conflict prevention, crisis management and post-conflict rehabilitation in Europe, Central Asia and North America.
All 57 participating States enjoy equal status and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically but not legally binding basis.
The OSCE is headquartered in Vienna, Austria.
