The human dimension of the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe (CSCE) implies an alternative vision of security and co-operation in Europe, based on respect for human rights, democracy, the rule of law, minority rights and human contacts. Until recently the human dimension has been the main claim to perpetuity of the CSCE. It has been through the years the main point of controversy among its participating states, and has played an important role in the revolutionary events of 1989 which transformed Europe.

On 9 and 10 July 1992, the Heads of State or Government of 51 participating states of the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe (CSCE) convened in the Finnish capital, Helsinki. This meeting, which became known as Helsinki-II, marked an important milestone in the history of the CSCE process which was born at the same place about two decades previously. This collection of essays analyzes the results of the Helsinki Summit and the major issues which were debated. Topics range from political and security dimension of the CSCE, economic cooperation and the protection of the environment, to human dimension issues. Most authors were engaged in (parts of) the negotiation process which led to the Helsinki Document.

After the heads of state and government of almost all European countries, the USA, and Canada signed the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe in Helsinki on August 1st, 1975, little was heard about the CSCE process. However, far away from the headline-grabbing meetings between the leading politicians of the USA and the USSR as well as the Geneva negotiations on disarmament, the Helsinki process proved to be an efficient framework for the East-West negotiations. The inconclusive Belgrade CSCE Meeting of 1977-1978 - after six months the delegations were only able to agree on a brief final document - was nevertheless a significant milestone for the CSCE process itself: negotiation rules were drawn up, interpreted, negotiated and re-negotiated. The contributions to this volume offer solid insights into the follow-up meeting in Belgrade in 1977/78, the Cold War, and in particular the CSCE process.
