OSCE Insights presents policy briefs on current OSCE-related topics in English, German, and Russian. The series is edited by the Centre for OSCE Research (CORE) at IFSH Hamburg, in cooperation with Nomos Publishing, and is the successor to the OSCE Yearbook. OSCE Insights contributions address an international readership of researchers and practitioners and include recommendations for enhancing comprehensive and cooperative security from Vancouver to Vladivostok. Authors discuss institutional changes to the OSCE, relations with other international organizations, and the interests of participating States in the OSCE. Further topics include conflict management, security sector reform, arms control, environmental protection, and human rights. Contributions are published online throughout the year and are compiled in print editions (in English, German, and Russian) at the start of the following year.
