The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly Robert Spencer Oliver As one of the newest OSCE Institutions, organized and created at the request of the Heads of State or Government of the participating states of the CSCE, the Parliamentary Assembly occupies a unique place in the structure of the OSCE. The Assembly's primary task is to facilitate inter-parliamentary dialogue, an increasingly important aspect of the overall effort to meet the challenge of democratization. In addition, the Assembly provides a vital link between the governmental side of OSCE and representatives directly elected by the popular will of voters in 54 OSCE countries. Important objectives of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly are - as stated in the Assembly's Rules of Procedure - to: 1) assess the implementation of OSCE objectives by participating states; 2) discuss subjects addressed during meetings of the Ministerial Council and the summits of Heads of State or Government; 3) develop and promote mechanisms for the prevention and resolution of conflicts; 4) support the strengthening and consolidation of democratic institutions in OSCE participating states; and 5) contribute to the development of OSCE institutional structures and of relations and cooperation between existing OSCE institutions.
