Coordinated by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this project implemented by the OSCE Secretariat focuses on the application of OSCE’s Confidence Building Measures (CBM) in Member countries as well as the Western Balkans.



The objective of the project is to organize trainings on the role of ICTs in the context of regional/international security and the application of the OSCE Confidence-Building Measures therein. The project is aimed at policy makers, technical experts and actors from the private sector in order to inform them about international cybersecurity, international law and norms in the cyber domain.


On 10 March 2016, the Permanent Council of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe adopted Decision No. 1202 on OSCE confidence-building measures (CBMs) to reduce the risks of conflict stemming from the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The leading idea behind the CBMs, is to have a system of direct communication between states to defuse conflicts and prevent unintentional escalation. The Decision adds five new CBMs and a new section of ‘Considerations’ to the initial set of 11 CBMs.
