The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis.
The OSCE Mission’s principal aim is to promote stability and reconciliation while assisting Bosnia and Herzegovina on its path to regional political, economic and social integration. Mission activities seek to foster systems of governance, justice and education that uphold human rights and the rule of law for all citizens. Moreover, the Mission supports the development of an effective, responsive, and inclusive security sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in keeping with international standards.
