Global society targeted by global crime: The OSCE’s approach through police training

  • Guy Vinet

Abstract

The OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) is an international organization which was set up based on the wide security approach through the three security-related dimensions: politico-military, economic and environmental, and human. The OSCE, as the author states, is not a training institution and considers itself as a service supporter, provider and facilitator through a holistic and cross-dimensional approach of security.
The OSCE as an organization is based on the working principle of co-operation. OSCE’s activities implemented in order to face challenges, are those addressing threats posed by organized crime, and those promoting and supporting police development and reform. Moreover, the OSCE promotes good practices, guidance and principles on the way to better conduct training dedicated to cadets and new police officers.
In conclusion, the author supports that the OSCE’s ambition in the sphere of police matters is to assist the participating states in addressing threats posed by criminal activity, while upholding the rule of law and ensuring respect for human rights by using the ways and the support of police development and reform.
