About This Programme

The OSCE "Forum for Security Co-operation Programme" has been developed to increase the knowledge of the OSCE participating States (pS), point of contacts in Capitals (POCs) and OSCE Executive Structures about the politico-military dimension of the organization, entailing the broad and diverse agenda of the Forum for Security and Co-operation (FSC).

Programme Structure

Course 1 - The "Introduction to Forum for Security Co-operation" course includes modules on:

  • Introduction to the Forum for Security Cooperation (the FSC)
  • The Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) and the Stockpiles of Conventional Ammunition (SCA) assistance mechanism
  • UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.
  • UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) 1540 on Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction;

Course 2 - The "Conventional Arms Control (CAC) and Confidence- and Security-Building Measures (CSBMs)" course includes modules on:

  • The Vienna Document
  • Conventional Arms Control
  • The OSCE Code of Conduct on Politico-Military Aspects of Security
  • Military Information Exchanges

Course 3 - The "FSC in-depth" course includes more advanced modules and technical guidance.

Learning Objectives:

The overall objective of the project is to support the systemization of knowledge transfer to the delegates and national focal points in the capitals of the pS and verification centers about the broad agenda of the FSC.

Ultimately, we seek to enhance knowledge of the representatives of the OSCE pS, POCs and the OSCE Executive Structures on the OSCE politico-military dimension and related topics, specifically on conventional arms control (CAC) and confidence and security building measures (CSBMs).

Through practical online and physical training modules on specific aspects of FSC topics there is also a great potential to contribute to and improve the expertise of the OSCE Executive structures, especially the Field Operations.
