The OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions is a Track II initiative. It supports co-operative and comprehensive security in the OSCE area by providing policy advice, enhancing transnational civil society interaction, and raising awareness of the OSCE.

Membership is open to research institutions from OSCE participating States and partner states that are engaged in academic and policy research on issues relevant to the OSCE. For more information on the Network and the benefits of membership, see our Information Sheet.

The Network is based on a proposal made by OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier in July 2011. It was created by 16 research institutions on 18 June 2013 at the Vienna Hofburg. As of spring 2021, the Network has over 140 member institutions.
