Allgemeine Informationen

The International Forum Vienna 2016 takes place from 18 - 24 of May 2016 in the beautiful Austrian capital Vienna. Due to full support by the German OSCE Chairmanship in 2016 150 young people, aged 16  to 26, from Europe, Central Asia and North America will come together to discuss OSCE related topics in a simulation of the European Parliament. Under the theme "Dialogue, Trust & Security" our participants will not only be able to share their views and ideas on current political problems and security issues, but will also gain practical insight into the topics they discuss by experts and politicians. Furthermore, this forum is a platform to built trust and friendships throughout the whole world.

The International Forum Vienna 2016 is fully supported by the German Chairmanship of the OSCE in 2016. It is part of the project Dialogue, Trust and Security – Youth Perspectives of the OSCE in 2016, which not only brings international security experts and decision-makers into a dialogue with young people, but also explores what the next generation envisions for the future security of the continent. The project "Dialogue, Trust and Security" does not only include the International Forum Vienna, but there will also be another Forum taking place in Belgrade this summer and multiple discussion events in Germany. Thanks to this support we are able to welcome delegates not only from EYP countries but from other OSCE’s participating states as well to these Forums. More about the OSCE: The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is the world’s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organisation. Its mandate includes issues such as arms control and the promotion of human rights, freedom of the press and fair elections. The OSCE is concerned with early warning, conflict prevention, crisis management, and post-conflict rehabilitation. Its 57 participating states are located in Europe, northern and central Asia and North America and cover much of the land area of the Northern Hemisphere.
