With 57 participating States in North America, Europe and Asia, the OSCE – the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe – is the world’s largest regional security organization. The OSCE works for stability, peace and democracy for more than a billion people, through political dialogue about shared values and through practical work that aims to make a lasting difference.
Within the Secretariat, the Office of the Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities (OCEEA) addresses security-related economic and environmental issues as part of OSCE's comprehensive approach to security. In order to enhance security and stability in the region, the OSCE works on promoting international co-operation on economic issues, strengthening good governance and assisting our participating States in combating corruption, money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Good governance is promoted by working closely with government institutions and relevant national structures as well as regional and international organizations, teaming up with the business community and civil society, and by leveraging our extensive field presences in South-Eastern Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
