The Helsinki Process: from the CSCE to the OSCE

This video clip presents the origins and development of the Helsinki Process, from the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) to the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). It outlines, in particular, the aims of the Conference when it was first established during the Cold War era, its influence as an instrument for détente between East and West and its conversion into an organisation with new tasks following the collapse of the Communist bloc.
