Where We Are
Where we are
Most of the OSCE’s staff and resources are deployed in the OSCE’s field operations in South-Eastern Europe, Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia. These operations are established at the invitation of the respective host countries, and their mandates are agreed by consensus by the participating States.
The OSCE’s field operations enable the OSCE to tackle crises as they arise, and to play a critical post-conflict role, helping to restore trust among affected communities. More broadly, they foster the capacity of their host countries through concrete projects that respond to the needs of participating States and their societies. These include initiatives to support law enforcement, minority rights, legislative reform, the rule of law and media freedom. Information on the OSCE closed field operations you can find here.
