The OSCE has not coped with the role of mediator in the conflict in eastern Ukraine, but should it be underestimated?

Why annexation of Crimea and Donbas war threaten European security system? Is  the crisis – the only field of cooperation between Ukraine and OSCE?

The leading Ukrainian diplomats, experts and institutions of the OSCE in Ukraine will join the security debates


The project is implemented in partnership with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Ukraine


Questions for discussion:

  • How did annexation of Crimea and the conflict in the East of Ukraine influence the European system of international relations, which was formed within the OSCE framework?
  • Is the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis the only issue on the security agenda of the Ukraine-OSCE relations?
  • What is the place of Ukraine in the priorities of Germany’s OSCE chairmanship in 2016?
