CORE at Vienna Workshop on "Historical Narratives"

The OSCE Network of Think Tanks and Academic Institutions conducted a second workshop on “Historical Narratives” at OSCE headquarters in Vienna on 6 November 2017. The event was part of the project “The Road to the Charter of Paris. Historical Narratives and Lessons for the OSCE Today” that aims to contribute to a better mutual understanding of divergent security policy narratives. It was attended by members of the so-called Reflection Group of the OSCE Network, representatives of the OSCE Secretariat and other experts, who discussed the draft report, to some degree, controversially. OSCE-Network Coordinator, Wolfgang Zellner, and Naida Mehmedbegović Dreilich represented CORE at the event. The project’s final report will be presented to the OSCE at a side event during the OSCE Ministerial Council Meeting on 7 December 2017.
