OSCE’s Involvement in Conflict Resolution Across the Post-Soviet Space

... Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian security community remains quite valid. I don’t see a better vision anywhere. However, in reality, we couldn’t be farther away from realizing this vision as there is huge distrust between the major security stakeholders in the OSCE area. There is a lack of dialogue, there is the unravelling of the arms control architecture that we have built during the past 2-3 decades.

In this regard, do you think that the Organization needs an institutional reform? Wolfgang Zellner: Time ...
