CORE at Vienna Workshop on OSCE Economic and Environmental Confidence-Building

The OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions conducted a second workshop on “OSCE Confidence-Building in the Economic and Environmental Dimension” at OSCE headquarters in Vienna, 10 October 2017. The event was part of a project that looks to assess the role economic and environmental matters could play to overcome distrust in the current geopolitical confrontation between the West and Russia. It was attended by representatives of the Austrian OSCE Chairmanship and the Office of the Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities as well as a dozen scholars of the OSCE Network.  OSCE Network Co-ordinator Wolfgang Zellner and Frank Evers represented CORE at the event. The project’s final report will be presented to the OSCE in December 2017.
