Public Diplomacy Section

The Public Diplomacy Section provides information on USOSCE policies and the U.S. role within the OSCE to American and foreign audiences. We reach this audience through briefings, visitor programs, with the distribution of U.S. Public Diplomacy and USOSCE produced materials, and through various online platforms such as this website.

The Public Diplomacy Section is responsible for handling and directing media inquiries concerning the U.S. Mission to the OSCE.
