englischIn a year that saw two OSCE participating States go to war and a territory within a third declare its independence, the OSCE Yearbook documents the dramatic events in detail. It also covers a wide range of OSCE-relevant topics with contributions by leading academics, diplomats, and practitioners.

S. Neil MacFarlane, Elena Kropatcheva, Hansjörg Eiff, and David Aprasidze provide analysis and background on the Georgia-South Ossetia conflict, while Bernhard Knoll takes a detailed look at the legal ramifications of the Kosovo status process.

European security and the role of the OSCE are explored by P. Terrence Hopmann and the authorial team of Michael Merlingen, Manuel Mireanu, and Elena B. Stavrevska.

The OSCE Yearbook 2008 explores the work of the Organization’s field presences in Croatia, Macedonia and Tajikistan, and includes a comparative analysis of the OSCE’s democratization strategies. Knut Vollebæk reviews fifteen years of the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities, and Arnaud Amouroux considers the record of the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media a decade on. Other matters in the spotlight include the work of the Special Representative on Trafficking in Human Beings, the Forum for Security Co-operation, and the OSCE’s relations with China and Afghanistan.
