Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe debate

Peers took part in a dinner-break debate on the role of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, on 16 January 2012.

The debate was tabled by Conservative peer Lord Bowness and also looked at plans to increase the awareness of the work of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

The OSCE is the world's largest regional security organisation and is made up of 56 states from Europe, Central Asia and North America.

It offers a forum for political negotiations and decision-making in the fields of early warning, conflict prevention, crisis management and post-conflict rehabilitation.
