First OSCE Insights paper - The OSCE in Central Asia: Debating Police-related Activities


"The OSCE in Central Asia: Debating Police-related Activities" by Dr habil. Cornelius Friesendorf, is the first paper in the OSCE Insights series. It calls for a debate on the effects of OSCE police-related activities in Central Asia. Is the OSCE able to support democratic police governance in Central Asia? To what extent can the OSCE help improve human security? What are the limitations and risks of law enforcement support? This paper outlines how participating States that want the OSCE to support democratic policing can use opportunities, address limitations, and limit risks.
