OSCE

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is the largest regional security body, set up with the aim of preventing conflict in Europe and its surroundings. The OSCE has its origins in the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE), held in Helsinki in 1975. The organisation currently groups together 57 States in Europe, North America and Central Asia.​

The last country to join the organisation was Mongolia in 2012. All the States enjoy the same status in the development of their functions as a regional organisation for security and cooperation in the whole of its geographic area. It has 16 missions on the ground in Southeast Europe, Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. It principally handles three main issues: political-military affairs, economic-environmental issues and human rights The OSCE has become the largest peacebuilding alliance following the signing of the Helsinki Final Act.
  • History and Goals
    Conceived as a vehicle for a detente between the two enemy blocs in the Cold War, the CSCE later became the OSCE, it aspires to be a decisive organisation in the security policy of the whole of Europe. It also takes on the challenge of boosting and strengthening democratisation, crisis management and respect for human rights in the 57 countries that comprise its membership.
  • Spain in the OSCE
    Spain is one of the founding countries of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Since its origins back in 1973, Spain has formed part of the then named “Conference for Security and Cooperation in Europe” (CSCE), and when this became an organisation in 1994, its permanent representation was set up in Vienna.
