Field operations

Most of the OSCE’s staff and resources are deployed in field operations in South-eastern Europe, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the South Caucasus. The operations are established at the invitation of the host countries.

The majority of the current OSCE field operations focus on:

  • Good governance
  • The promotion of democratic practices and human rights
  • Free elections
  • The rule of law
  • Conflict monitoring through early warning and prevention

Field operations are described in more detail in Module 2: OSCE Field Operations .
