Center for Security Policy, by Frank Gaffney, Sept. 12, 2017:
The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is the world’s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization. Its mandate includes issues such as arms control, promotion of human rights, freedom of the press, and fair elections.
The OSCE is concerned with early warning, conflict prevention, crisis management, and post-conflict rehabilitation. Created during the Cold War era as an East–West forum, Its 57 participating states are located in Europe, northern and central Asia, and North America.
Over the past decade, the OSCE has become an important battlespace in the war of ideas regarding freedom of speech, civilization jihad and the spread of sharia law into large swaths of Europe. Governmental and nongovernmental bodies from member nations may send representatives to take part in working sessions and side events where matters of international security are discussed.
This year, Executive Vice President Christopher Hull and Vice President for Research and Analysis Clare Lopez will represent the Center for Security Policy at the 2017 Human Dimension Implementation Meeting in Warsaw, Poland.
