The OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions is a Track II initiative that engages in policy advice and trust-building. Network members from across the OSCE area are engaged in policy analysis of OSCE-relevant topics and exchange information on publications and events. The Network works closely with the national delegations to the OSCE in Vienna. Inspired by OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier, and alongside over a dozen research institutions, the IFSH co-founded the Network in June 2013 and continues to coordinate its activities.
