The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is a pan-European security body whose 57 participating
States span the geographical area from Vancouver to Vladivostok. Recognized as a regional arrangement under
Chapter VIII of the United Nations Charter, the OSCE is a primary instrument for early warning, conflict prevention, crisis
management and post-conflict rehabilitation in its area. Its approach to security is unique in being both comprehensive
and co-operative: comprehensive in that it deals with three dimensions of security - the human, the politico-military
and the economic/environmental. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including human rights,
arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies,
counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities.
