As the international environment becomes increasingly fragile, divided and competitive, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) faces new and evolving challenges. In this context it is crucial for the OSCE to put forward targeted and realistic priorities for action within the OSCE system and beyond.

This event will examine current challenges to European security and the role that the OSCE can play in supporting the de-escalation of military conflicts and countering radicalism and extremism. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
