OSCE will organize a series of human dimension meetings and conferences
jointly with the current Spanish Chairmanship of the OSCE. The value of
civil society has rightly been recognized on a large number of occasions

16-18 May, Warsaw

October and the review of the implementation of OSCE human dimension
commitments will again be the focus of debate.

specially selected topics:
