A member of the OSCE Mediterranean Partners, Morocco’s connection with the OSCE dates back to the Helsinki Final Act of 1975. The Act recognized the close relationship between European and Mediterranean security and in 1994 a contact group was formed to formally involve the southern Mediterranean countries with the OSCE. Since that time, Morocco has been an active participant in many OSCE Mediterranean Partnership events particularly on topics such as environmental degradation, terrorism, migration, and drugs and arms trafficking.
In November 2017, the Moroccan Parliament hosted a high-level delegation from the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly for a conference on countering violent extremism in Rabat. In October 2019, Morocco hosted the Autumn Session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Marrakech.
