OSCE is a regional organization founded on a comprehensive approach to security which directly links security to democratic values. OSCE policies related to promoting democracy have a wide scope and they are an integral part of the security dialogue, cooperation and standards the Organization aims to promote. Through the Helsinki Final Act of the 1970s and several important documents from the early 1990s, OSCE has built an extensive body of human dimension commitments, which entails all the essential ingredients of democracy and with it good governance, the rule of law, parliamentary oversight, election standards and procedures, civil society, media freedom and civil-military relations.
