Challenges ahead for HCNM
The Conference will seek to take stock through a historical overview of the role played by the HCNM in the conflicts and transitions in Europe in the 1990s.
The conference presenters will analyze the international circumstances that contribute to the further development of HCNM’s work. They will also reflect on the future challenges that the Office of the HCNM will be called to address in advancing peaceful interethnic relations in the OSCE area.
