29th Annual Session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly
In 2022 the UK will be hosting the 29th Annual Session of the OSCE PA. It will be in Birmingham from 2 - 6 July.
Organizing this Annual Session is one of the ways that the UK Parliament supports the work of the OSCE PA. Hosting the meeting helps the UK Parliament facilitate effective scrutiny and debate internationally. The United Kingdom last hosted the Annual Session in 2004, in Edinburgh.
The programme for an Annual Session has a five-day schedule consisting of meetings of the Standing Committee, each of the three General Committees and Plenary meetings of the Assembly. Session participants are addressed by guest speakers usually including senior OSCE representatives and members of the host country’s parliament and government.
