The Organization of American States (OAS) mission is to establish between its member states "an order of peace and justice, to promote their solidarity, to strengthen their collaboration, and to defend their sovereignty, their territorial integrity, and their independence", as written down in the OAS Charter, document that defines its policies.

Founded in 1948, the organization has currently 35 member states. OAS acts on political dialog, inclusion, cooperation, legal instruments e monitoring procedures, targeting the strengthening of democracy.

Moreover, the organization addresses commerce issues, economic integration, and drug control, among other joint concerns. It also disseminates the cyber-security mindset through the Inter-American Committee against Terrorism (CICTE), which supports the establishment of CSIRTs in the member states.
