POSTPONED: Strengthening International Peace and Security
Thank you all for you interest in our event with OSCE Secretary General Helga Schmid. Unfortunately, at this time we need to postpone this event for a later date. We will keep you informed of that change.
- Helga Schmid, Secretary General, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe
- Ian Lesser, Vice President, The German Marshall Fund of the United States
The German Marshall Fund of the United States would like to invite you to a timely conversation with Helga Schmid, the new secretary general at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). The conversation, moderated by GMF's Ian Lesser, will focus on Secretary General Schmid’s priorities in her new capacity at the OSCE. This includes a focus on OSCE efforts to address the far-reaching impacts of COVID-19 and Secretary General Schmid’s vision on how multilateral organizations, including the OSCE, can strengthen peace building, prevent conflict, and empower women and girls.
Representing 57 member countries, the OSCE holds a unique position in the international security architecture. Promoting a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects, the organization addresses a wide range of security challenges, including arms control, human rights, democratization, policing strategies, counterterrorism, and economic and environmental activities.
We hope that you are able to join GMF for this conversation with the OSCE’s Secretary General Schmid on April 28. If you have any questions, please contact William Stewart-Wood at [email protected].
