Who we are

The OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions is an autonomous OSCE-related track II initiative. It is neither an OSCE structure nor subordinated to the OSCE or its participating States. The network's members are research institutions from across the OSCE area that are engaged in academic research and policy analysis on issues relevant to the OSCE’s security agenda. Currently, the network includes 80 institutions from 41 countries. For the current list of members, see Members.

What we do

The network provides expertise, stimulates discussion and raises awareness of the OSCE. The network is likewise used for the exchange of expertise and the coordination of activities between its members.

For current and completed projects, see Projects. For events, see Events.

How we are structured

The network’s working instruments include: network meetings, the steering committee, the network co-ordinator, the website and project co-ordinators. For more information, please go to Working Instruments. Decisions on the network’s activities are collectively taken at network meetings. The network’s steering committee and a network co-ordinator are elected for a term of two years.
