OSCE Insights Special Issue 2021: The Future of the OSCE

The Centre for OSCE Research (CORE) at the IFSH, together with Nomos Verlag, has just published an OSCE Insights Special Issue. This is a collection of eight contributions that shed light on what the governments of OSCE participating States expect from the OSCE, focusing on the planning and interests of eight states: France, Kazakhstan, North Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and the United States. The authors also elaborate on perceived limitations of the OSCE and suggest ways forward. This special issue contributes to the discussion on how to make the OSCE more relevant for its participating States and more effective in fulfilling its purpose, ahead of its 50th anniversary in 2025.
